Canada's privatised air-traffic-services provider NavCanada has modified and deferred planned user fees after consultation with aircraft operators. The changes will delay the transition from an air-transportation tax to full cost-recovery by user fees to 1 November, 1998.

NavCanada says that the revised proposal will give airlines more time to implement the changes. New fees for en route and terminal air-navigation services, and increases to existing overflight fees, were to have been introduced on 1 November, but the change has been delayed to 1 March, 1998.
