There should be no dispensations in CASO 20 for tourist - or any other - air transport operations. It is possible, however, that operators could read the current wording of paragraph 9.2 as approving such operations, and I will take appropriate action to ensure that the working unmistakably reflects the intent, which should be not to allow low flying for air transport operations.
