AIR CANADA’S appeal of a court ruling that requires the airline to keep maintenance operations in Canada was grounded by the Quebec Court of Appeal earlier this month.

A 2013 ruling from Quebec’s Superior Court found Air Canada was in violation of the requirements of the Air Canada Public Participation Act (ACPPA) when it failed to keep heavy-maintenance operations in Canada.
