Canadian court approves settlement in class action lawsuit against Skyservice Airlines
TORONTO - An Ontario court has approved a settlement in a class action lawsuit against now-defunct charter airline Skyservice.

The airline has already paid out $300,000 to passengers aboard a 2005 flight that had a hard landing in the Dominican Republic.

Law firm Rochon Genova LLP says Skyservice has agreed to set up an initial settlement fund of $600,000, and will pay for all bodily injuries that resulted from the landing.

The airline has already settled with 34 people, and lawsuits with at least 10 more passengers are still outstanding, said Rochon Genova, which represented the plaintiffs in the class action.

The class action sought to recover damages for injuries and economic losses following the hard landing of a flight that took off from Toronto on May 22, 2005, and landed in Punta Cana.
