03FEB2013: All Mazatlan flights cancelled by Cal Jet Air from February 5
Cal Jet Air (Minneapolis/St. Paul Wold-Chamberlain International (MSP)) has announced that it has decided to cancel all remaining public charter flights between its US departure airports and Mazatlán General Rafael Buelna International (MZT) from February 5 due to a decision by its Mexican partner Sinaloa Group. The public charter operator did not elaborate further on the exact reason of the cancellation of all future flights that were planned until early April. Cal Jet had only launched in late December offering non-stop services and vacation packages from Denver International (DEN), Houston George Bush Intercontinental (IAH), Los Angeles International (LAX), Oakland Metropolitan International (OAK) and San Antonio International (SAT) to Mazatlan using B737-400s chartered from Xtra Airways (XP, Elko Regional (EKO)).

05DEC2012: Vision Airlines fined for not operating Direct Air charters
Vision Airlines (USA) (V2, Las Vegas McCarran International (LAS)) has been fined by the US Department of Transportation for not operating flights on behalf of public charter carrier Direct Air (D1, Myrtle Beach International (MYR)) back in March when Direct Air had run out of funds and been forced to suspend operations. According to US legislation, the operators of such public charter flights are not allowed to cancel flights less than 10 days before scheduled departure and need to have security arrangements with the charterer to ensure they are paid for these flights. Vision just like World Atlantic Airlines (K8, Miami International (MIA)) and Xtra Airways (XP, Elko Regional (EKO)) had just immediately cancelled all Direct Air flights leaving customers stranded violating these rules. The two other carriers had been fined by the DOT earlier already.
