OTTAWA, March 24 (Reuters) - The Canadian government on Thursday introduced legislation designed to prevent lawsuits by provinces against Air Canada over where the carrier's aircraft are serviced.

Transport Minister Marc Garneau - who announced plans for the legislation last month - said in a statement that the move would "allow Air Canada the flexibility to be competitive in a constantly evolving air transport sector". (Reporting by David Ljunggren Editing by W Simon)
