OST-2006-25585 - Exemption - US-Ecuador Cargo

August 8, 2006

Application for an Exemption - Bookmarked

Aeroshell, a licensed air carrier of Ecuador, requests an exemption from 49 U.S.C. 41301 to authorize Aeroshell to engage in scheduled foreign air transportation of property between Quito, Guayaquil, Manta, and Latacunga, Ecuador, on the one hand, and Miami, Florida, on the other hand, using aircraft wet leased from a qualified US. or foreign air carrier.

Aeroshell seeks the requested exemption from the Department for a period of at least one year.

Aeroshell intends to commence its services to the United States pursuant to a wet lease arrangement with a qualified U.S. or foreign air carrier.

Initially, Aeroshell plans to provide twice-weekly scheduled foreign air transportation of property between the coterminal points of Quito and either Guayaquil or Manta, on the one hand, and Miami, Florida, on the other hand. For this service Aeroshell is presently negotiating the wet lease of an MD-11F or a DC-10-30F all-cargo aircraft. After the Miami service is established, Aeroshell hopes to expand its US-Ecuador operations to include other U.S. points, such as New York, New York.

OST-2006-25585 - Exemption - US-Ecuador Cargo

Supplement No. 1 to Exemption Application

Motion for Confidential Treatment

On August 8, 2006 Aeroshell Cia. Ltda. applied for an exemption to engage in scheduled foreign air transportation of property and mail between Quito, Guayquil, Manta and Latacunga, Ecuador, and Miami, Florida. No answers were filed, and Aeroshell did not pursue the application (which remains pending) as it then decided to postpone U.S. service.

Aeroshell now has decided to commence U.S. operations. Accordingly, this supplement is being filed to update the record and to urge the Department to act expeditiously.

Aeroshell has been allocated two weekly Ecuador-U.S. frequencies. It is Aeroshell's intention to use those frequencies for serving the Ecuador-Miami market. Aeroshell also plans to request three additional frequencies to be used on the same route, and a five-year financial plan based on five weekly frequencies is being submitted to the Department with a motion for confidential treatment. As the company has not been operating in recent years, there is no useful, historic financial information available to include with this Supplement. Nevertheless, the Government of Ecuador, in reaffirming Aeroshell's international public transport license, has determined that the airline is qualified to operate the proposed services.

Aeroshell intends to serve the Ecuador-U.S, routes by wet leasing aircraft from a qualified U.S. or foreign air carrier. On November 13, 2006, Cielos del Peru, S.A., a Peruvian cargo airline, applied to the Department for authority to wet lease aircraft to Aeroshell, indicating that the two airlines were negotiating a long-term wet lease. Those negotiations were put on hold when Aeroshell postponed its U.S service, but Aeroshell and Cielos have now reached a long-term, wet lease arrangement under which Cielos will wet lease aircraft to Aeroshell for the proposed operations.

OST-2006-25585 - Exemption - US-Ecuador All-Cargo Charters

December 20, 2007

Amendment to Application for Exemption

Aeroshell Cia. Ltda. respectfully amends its request for an exemption from the provisions of 49 U.S.C. § 41301 to permit Aeroshell to engage in the charter foreign air transportation of property and mail between points in Ecuador and points in the United States and other charters pursuant to Part 212 of the Department's Economic Regulations. Aeroshell initially applied in this docket for scheduled, all-cargo, U.S.-Ecuador authority on August 8, 2006 and supplemented its application on September 17, 2007 with updated license and financial information (submitted confidentially). No answers were filed to the original application or the supplement. Since that time, Ecuadorian authorities have replaced Aeroshell's scheduled authority (first issued in 2002) with charter authority, and the Government of Ecuador has designated Aeroshell as a charter air carrier under the U.S.-Ecuador bilateral aviation agreement.

Aeroshell's new license authorizes service for an initial period of six months with wet-leased aircraft. To facilitate prompt entry into the market, Aeroshell plans initially to operate to the United States only using aircraft wet-leased to Aeroshell by Cielos del Peru, S.A. as described in that carrier's November 13, 2006 application for a statement of authorization.
