OST-2013-0179
- Exemptions and Statement of Authorization - Cancun-Chicago Codesharing with Delta Air Lines

Filed September 5, 2014 | Issued February 11, 2015

Notice of Action Taken

OST-2013-0168 - Renewal of exemption under 49 USC §40109 to permit the applicant to engage in scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property and mail between (1) Guadalajara, Mexico and New York, New York; (2) Guadalajara, Mexico and San Francisco, California; and (3) Morelia, Mexico and San Francisco, California.

AeroMexico notes that it expects its Guadalajara-New York operating designation to be withdrawn by the Government of Mexico and states that should withdrawal occur before the Department acts on the requested renewal, AeroMexico would accept dismissal of its request to renew its Guadalajara-New York authority.

The Government of Mexico has canceled AeroMexico’s Guadalajara-New York operating designation. Therefore, we are dismissing the applicant’s request for renewal of that portion of its authority.

OST-2013-0179 - Renewal of exemption under 49 USC §40109 to permit the applicant to engage in scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property and mail between Cancun, Mexico and Chicago, Illinois.

Tarmac Delay Rule

Project No. 15S3002S000

February 10, 2015

Re: Audit Announcement - Impacts of DOT's Tarmac Delay Rule

In recent years, the Department of Transportation has taken steps to reduce the number of lengthy tarmac delays—i.e., when passengers remain on board an aircraft on the tarmac for extended periods of time. Specifically, to address customer complaints and protect passenger rights during delays, DOT implemented a rule in 2010 that prohibits aircraft operating domestic flights from remaining on the tarmac for more than 3 hours without the opportunity for passengers to deplane,2 with some exceptions. In the 12 months following the introduction of the rule, the number of tarmac delays exceeding 3 hours decreased from 693 to 20.

However, since then, some questions have been raised regarding the rule’s impact on air carriers, including whether it has led to an increased number of cancelled flights. Recently, a number of studies have assessed the impact of the tarmac delay rule on cancellations, with mixed results. In particular, a study commissioned by the Office of the Secretary of Transportation found the tarmac delay rule to have an adverse impact on cancellations in the summer months of 2011, but little or no impact in 2010 and 2012.
