Critical observations

In July 1993, seven U.N. procurement officers from the agency headquarters, were probed after allegations circulated that they had rigged bids to favor SkyLink. Mohamed Aly Niazi led the inquiry that concluded U.N. officials had engaged in "outright bid rigging" in promoting SkyLink's case, however the corruption allegations were never substantiated and the employees returned to their jobs.

By Order No. 2001-A-530 dated November 16, 2001, Licence Nos. 962378 and 967142 were suspended because the certificate of insurance of the Licensee on file with the Canadian Transportation Agency had expired.

On August 28, 2002, a CTA Application was filed by Skylink Aviation Inc. for cancellation of Licence Nos. 962378 and 967142. These were the 2 licenses that permitted charter domestic and international service.

On September 14, 2005, an application was made, by Skylink Jets Inc. of Fort Lauderdale, a subsidiary of SkyLink Aviation, for a license to operate a non-scheduled international service to transport passengers on a charter basis between points in the United States of America and points in Canada.
