This long-term agreement will take us until December 31, 2035 and will show our ability to work together for a common goal of continued success for jazz. Ratification of this interim agreement was a prerequisite for the implementation of amendments and extensions to the Capacity Purchase Agreement (CPA) between Air Canada and Jazz, as was the case on January 14. The amendment and extension of the CPA is still subject to the completion of Air Canada`s $US 97.26 million stake in Chorus. Chorus expects the equity stake to be completed no later than Feb. 8, when the cpa change and extension will take effect, the company said. Local members of Jazz Aviation L.P.
