May 2, 2018

Application for a Foreign Air Carrier Permit and Exemption Authority

ACE Belgium Freighters S.A. hereby applies for a foreign air carrier permit to the full extent authorized by the Air Transport Agreement Between the United States and the European Union, as amended, to enable it to engage in:

  1. foreign scheduled and charter air transportation of property and mail from any point or points behind any Member State of the European Union via any point or points in any Member State and via intermediate points to any point or points in the United States and beyond;
  2. foreign scheduled and charter air transportation of property and mail between any point or points in the United States and any point or points in any member of the European Common Aviation Area;
  3. foreign scheduled and charter air transportation of property and mail between the United States and any point or points;
  4. other charters pursuant to the prior approval requirements set forth in Part 212 of the Department’s Economic Regulations; and
  5. transportation authorized by any additional route rights made available to European Community carriers in the future.

ACE further requests exemption authority under 49 USC § 40109 to the extent necessary to enable it to provide the services described above pending issuance of a foreign air carrier permit and such additional or other relief as the Department may deem necessary or appropriate.

ACE initially plans to operate ACMI service on behalf of other airlines from its operational base of Liege, Belgium to points in the United States, including New York (JFK) and Atlanta, pursuant to wetlease agreements with those parties. ACE plans to expand its service at a later date, and will ultimately operate both scheduled and charter all-cargo service to the United States using its own aircraft in the future.
