In the early morning hours of March 29, 2015, Air Canada Flight 624 crashed on its landing approach at the Halifax Stanfield International Airport. The weather conditions at the time were poor and the Airbus A320, which was enroute from Toronto, carried 133 passengers and five crew members.
All passengers and crew aboard Flight 624 were able to escape the aircraft. Injuries as a result of the crash included broken bones, scrapes, scratches and many neck and back problems that remain ongoing. A large number of passengers on Flight 624 also suffered severe psychological trauma as a result of the crash. The class action will seek to obtain appropriate compensation for the harm caused to the passengers.
On December 12 and 13, 2016, the Honourable Justice Denise Boudreau heard the Plaintiffs’ motion to certify the lawsuit concerning the crash of Flight 624 as a class action.
Justice Boudreau provided her oral decision to all counsel on December 13, 2016. We are pleased to report that the motion to certify was successful against all defendants.
A copy of the Certification Order may be found under the Court Documents heading.
