Canada is introducing new regulations to limit the maximum number of hours that commercial pilots can fly and cap the time they remain on duty, Transport Minister Marc Garneau said on Wednesday. The new rules, which large airlines would have two years to apply, are similar to proposals weighed by regulator Transport Canada (TC) in 2017 and come after years of studies on ways to reduce fatigue in the cockpit. The U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) cited fatigue as a contributing factor in a July 2017 incident when an Air Canada flight from Toronto overflew other aircraft at close range on a San Francisco International Airport taxiway, nearly causing a potentially "catastrophic" incident.

Canada's second-largest carrier WestJet Airlines Ltd aims to grow its share of higher-paying passengers to a similar level as its 37 percent overall market share, Chief Executive Officer Ed Sims said on Tuesday. The Calgary-based airline carries about 21 percent of business and premium passengers, even though it has a 37 percent share of the market overall in Canada, Sims said in an interview following the company's investor day presentation in Toronto. "We'd like to have a similar market share in the premium market for that which we have in the Canadian market," he said by phone.
CALGARY , Dec. 4, 2018 /CNW/ - WestJet (WJA.TO) today provided 2019 to 2022 targets at its Investor Day held in Toronto from 9:15 a.m. ET to 12:30 p.m. ET . In 2019, WestJet expects to expand margins through a combination of improved revenue performance, a continued focus on cost control and a prudent approach to capacity management. For the full year of 2019, RASM is expected to be in the range of up 2.0 per cent to 4.0 per cent year over year driven by solid demand and strength in the core WestJet business, the roll-out of branded fares across all WestJet operated routes, the increase in WestJet's first bag fee, Swoop ancillary per traveller increasing to $40 , and the introduction of premium and business cabins on the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, offset by capacity increases in Swoop which have a dilutive effect on overall RASM performance.
SINGAPORE/SEATTLE (Reuters) - An optional warning light could have alerted engineers about mechanical faults on Lion Air's Boeing 737 MAX jet that crashed last month, experts said, sparking an industry debate over whether installing the system should become mandatory. Lion Air did not install the AOA DISAGREE alert, which warns pilots when the "angle of attack" (AOA) readings do not match, because it is optional and not required by regulators, Managing Director Daniel Putut told Reuters. A faulty AOA reading led the doomed Lion Air jet's computer to believe it was stalled, prompting the plane's new anti-stall system, called the Maneuvering Characteristics Augmentation System (MCAS), to repeatedly push down the nose.

WASHINGTON/ZHUHAI, China (Reuters) - The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration issued an emergency airworthiness directive on Wednesday to address how to handle erroneous data from a sensor on the new Boeing 737 MAX jet in the wake of last week's Indonesian jetliner crash. Boeing Co (BA.N) said in a statement that it had alerted pilots to the issue. The FAA said it was mandating that airlines follow the Boeing bulletin.
Boeing Co (BA.N) is planning to send a bulletin to 737 MAX jet operators as soon as Wednesday advising them of the procedure for dealing with erroneous cockpit readings that could cause a dive, a person briefed on the matter told Reuters. The advice is based on preliminary information gathered in the investigation of a Lion Air flight that crashed in Indonesia last week killing all 189 on board, the person said. Indonesian accident investigators said on Monday that an airspeed indicator on the crashed jet was damaged for its last four flights, but U.S. authorities responded cautiously to suggestions of fleet-wide checks.
