Section 37-9-22Certificates for common carriers and permits for contract carriers - Authority to require common carriers to make reasonable extension of existing service.
The commission, upon petition or complaint or upon its own initiative, after notice and opportunity for hearing, may by order require any common carrier by aircraft to make reasonable extension of its existing service if the commission finds that such extension is required by the public convenience and necessity and that the expense involved will not impair the ability of such common carrier to perform its duties to the public under its existing certificate or certificates. Such order shall provide for such amendment of the certificate or certificates held by such common carrier as may be necessary because of such extension.
