OST-2012-0049 - Exemption and Foreign Air Carrier Permit - Turkey-US All-Cargo Charters

May 4, 2018

Notice of Appearance of Substitute Counsel

Please be advised that the undersigned counsel now represents ACT Havayollari A.S. d/b/a ACT Airlines in this matter. John R. Mietus, Jr. no longer represents ACT in this matter. ACT filed an updated designation of agent for service of notice, process, orders, decisions and requirements in Docket OST-2002-12556.

Counsel: Morgan Lewis, Winstol Carter, 713-890-5140




May 4, 2018

Amendment No. 2

Six years ago, ACT Havayollari A.S. d/b/a ACT Airlines applied for a foreign air carrier permit to engage in charter foreign air transportation of property and mail between points in Turkey, via intermediate points, and points in the US and beyond, and to conduct other charters under 14 CFR Part 212. ACT subsequently amended its application in March 2013 to update the Department on ACT’s management structure. No objection was filed by any third party.

To complete the permit process, ACT amends its application for a second time to update the Department on ACT’s ownership structure and all other relevant information. This second amendment makes clear that ACT is entitled to the requested permit because, inter alia, ACT is wholly owned and substantially controlled by Turkish citizens. Turkish citizens possess 100% of the ownership interests in ACT, a majority of the positions on ACT’s Board of Directors, and every key management positions at ACT, including the positions of CEO and Managing Director.

In addition, ACT meets the statutory requirements for a foreign air carrier permit because ACT is fit, willing, and able to provide the foreign air transportation to be authorized by the permit, and ACT has been designated by the Turkish Government to provide foreign air transportation under the open-skies agreement between the US and Turkey. On top of that, the public interest weighs heavily in favor ACT’s permit request.

Antonov Airlines

OST-2018-0063 - Emergency Exemption - Laredo-Detroit


May 4, 2018

Application for an Emergency Exemption

Antonov Company t/a Antonov Airlines hereby applies for an emergency exemption pursuant to 49 USC §§ 40109(g) and 41703(c) to permit Antonov to operate a single one-way all-cargo charter flight transporting a heavy truck panel mold, plus ancillary parts and support equipment, from Laredo, Texas to Detroit, Michigan, May 4-7, 2018, using an AN-124-100 aircraft. Antonov respectfully requests expedited consideration and approval of this application today to address a pressing commercial requirement of Daimler Trucks North America LLC.

Daimler Trucks urgently requires delivery of truck panel molds to Detroit in order to avoid costly disruptions to Class 8 truck production. Active On-Demand Inc. is acting on Daimler Truck’s behalf to arrange the timely delivery of these panel molds and has chartered Antonov to operate one flight transporting one mold from Laredo, TX to Detroit, MI. The unit that needs to be transported measures approximately 86” x 68” x 75” but weighs approximately 74,000 lbs. Antonov is advised by the charterer that a unit of this weight and density could not be carried by freighter aircraft operated by US air carriers. As a result, the cargo needs to be transported using Antonov’s AN-124-100 aircraft.

Counsel: Hogan Lovells, Patrick Rizzi, 202-637-5959




Filed and Issued May 4, 2018

Notice of Action Taken

Exemption from 49 USC § 40109(g) to permit the applicant to operate one, one-way, all-cargo charter flight, using its AN-124-100 aircraft, carrying cargo for Active On-Demand Inc. on behalf of Daimler Trucks North America LLC between Laredo, Texas, and Detroit, Michigan, on or about May 4-7, 2018. The applicant states that the cargo to be transported consists of a heavy truck panel mold, ancillary parts, and support equipment. The applicant asserts that Daimler Trucks urgently requires delivery of truck panel molds in order to avoid costly disruptions to its Class 8 truck production; that it has been advised by the charterer that a shipment of this weight and density could not be carried by US civil freighter aircraft; that delay of the shipment would be unduly harmful and costly to Daimler Trucks and the employees and users who are relying on the timely and uninterrupted production of the affected vehicles; and that surface transportation is not feasible because of the urgency of the shipment and potential for damage and further delivery delays.

Essential Air Service at Pierre, South Dakota

OST-2011-0138

May 2, 2018

City of Pierre in Support of Aerodynamics Option 1

The City of Pierre was recently informed that Aerodynamics Inc. has withdrawn Option 2 from its Essential Air Service contract proposal. Consequently, the Pierre City Commission has revised its recommendation for the EAS contract.

Because the City's previous recommendation of ADI Option 2 with a reverse schedule is no longer available, the City is now recommending ADI Option 1; Option 1 continues our current service with 12 round trips weekly to Denver. While the community is certainly disappointed to lose the Minneapolis option, Pierre is pleased with the reliable jet service ADI has provided throughout its current contract.
