Shareholders also approved the special resolution adopting the previously announced plan of arrangement effecting amendments to Air Canada’s articles of incorporation to increase the limits of foreign ownership and control of its voting shares to those permitted by amendments made to the Canada Transportation Act in 2018. The implementation of these amendments, which are described in Air Canada’s February 15, 2019 news release, remains subject to final approval of the Quebec Superior Court at a hearing scheduled for May 8, 2019.
Final voting results on all matters voted on at the meeting will be filed on SEDAR.
