VIDEO: Freedom Air Gets Eviction Notice From Commonwealth Ports Authority


Saipan – For failing to pay unpaid obligations now totaling more than $1 million, the Commonwealth Ports Authority gave long-time tenant Freedom Air a final and irrevocable termination notice last Monday.

The Saipan Tribune reports that the local inter-island carrier now has until only Sept. 19 to vacate all CPA premises.

The termination notice voids Freedom Air’s lease agreements and airline use agreement with CPA and demands that the airline pay its arrears, now amounting to $1.23 million since 2011.

This is not the first time that CPA issued a termination notice against Freedom Air. Several notices of default, termination, and promissory notes were issued to the company since 2011: on Oct. 5, 2011; Aug. 18, 2012; Sept. 24, 2012; Feb. 5, 2013; and March 4, 2013.

CPA said if Freedom Air wishes to continue operations on CPA premises in the future, it must “fully satisfy its outstanding obligations today.”
