SKYLINK CONTINUES ITS UNITED NATIONS OPERATIONS

 TORONTO, July 21 /PRNewswire/ -- It is `business as usual' for SkyLink Aviation Transportation Services, a major supplier of aviation equipment and services to the United Nations.
 A matter involving payment to SkyLink from the United Nations was resolved today (July 21, 1993) and the Canadian-based Company is continuing to fulfil all its commitments to the United Nations, as per its contractual agreements.
 "It is unfortunate that the United Nations viewed our request for payment as a threat to paralyze its operations," said Jan Ottens, General Manager of SkyLink. "In actual fact, we have been requesting payment on outstanding invoices on a daily basis. The UN's payment delay was causing SkyLink great concern and affecting our ability to operate in the field.
 "On July 20, 1993, we informed our people in the field that we would be suspending our operations as of July 22, 1993, as we simply could not afford to continue our operations and incur further debt."
 "Its unfortunate that the this matter has become such a big story," said Mr. Ottens. "However, the issue has been resolved and SkyLink is hopeful that our good relations with the UN will continue."
 SkyLink Aviation Transportation Services is a Canadian-based, multi- national aviation management company.
