Our present action addresses the remaining portion of the Joint Applicants’ pending request in this Docket, on which the Department had previously deferred action. By Notice of Action Taken, dated February 16, 2011, we granted exemption authority to AeroMexico, and statements of authorization to Delta and SkyWest permitting them to display AeroMexico’s code, on various US-Mexico routes. At that time, we had not yet received notification from the Government of Mexico that it had authorized AeroMexico to conduct codeshare services in the seven US-Mexico routes listed above. We have now received the necessary notification from the Government of Mexico; therefore, we are granting the remainder of the carriers’ request.

We are granting AeroMexico’s exemption authority through February 16, 2012, coextensive with its existing exemption authority in this Docket.

At the time of our previous actions, we had not yet received notification from the Government of Mexico that it had authorized AeroMexico to conduct codeshare services in the five US-Mexico city-pair markets listed here. We have now received the necessary notification from the Government of Mexico regarding these five markets; therefore, we are granting those remaining portions of the carriers’ requests.

OST-1997-3289, OST-2000-7708 and OST-2013-0115:

Delta proposes to commence seasonal service, and intends to display the “AM” designator code of AeroMexico, in the subject markets beginning December 20, 2014.

Deferred exemption for AeroMexico - Scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property and mail on a codeshare basis on flights operated by Delta between (1) Los Angeles, California and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo, Mexico; (2) Los Angeles, California and Manzanillo, Mexico; and (3) Seattle, Washington and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.

We will approve the request of Delta for exemption authority. We note, however, that we have not yet received notification from the Government of Mexico that it has authorized AeroMexico to conduct codeshare services by displaying its code on Delta flights in the subject markets. Therefore, we will defer action on the request of AeroMexico for exemption authority and the corresponding request of Delta for a statement of authorization to display the AeroMexico code (and the associated waiver request). Delta requested such a deferral in these circumstances.

The US-Mexico exemption authority granted to Delta is subject to the dormancy notice requirements set forth in condition 7 of Appendix A of Order 1988-10-2, and the notice requirements for seasonal/intermittent services as set forth in Order 1996-11-24, at 5. Consistent with our standard policy, the dormancy notice period will begin on December 20, 2014, Delta’s proposed start-up date for the subject services.

OST-1997-3289 - Exemption - Blanket US-Mexico Beyond Gateways Codesharing
OST-2000-7708 - Statement of Authorization - US-Mexico Blind Sector Codeshare


November 5, 2014

Joint Application for a Statement of Authorization, Exemption and Special Authorization

Pursuant to 14 CFR Part 212, Shuttle America seeks a statement of authorization allowing it to display AeroMexico’s “AM*” code on Delta Connection flights Shuttle America operates: (a) on a blind-sector basis between Aeromexico’s US gateway points and other points in the US, and (b) between any point or points in the United States and any point or points in third countries on a blind-sector basis for the carriage of Aeromexico’s traffic between Mexico and third countries.

Although the AM* code will also be displayed on similar Delta Connection flights operated by Chautauqua, Chautauqua only operates service with small aircraft (having 60 or fewer passenger seats). Therefore, under 14 CFR §§ 206.5, 212.1, and 298.11, no statement of authorization is needed for the codeshare services to be operated by Chautauqua.

To the extent necessary, the Joint Applicants request consolidation of this Joint Application into Dockets OST-1997-3289 and OST-2000-7708, the Dockets established by the Department for the administration of codesharing authorization issued to Delta and AeroMexico.

Additionally, pursuant to 49 USC § 40109(c), AeroMexico requests an exemption from the provisions of 49 USC § 41301 to the extent necessary to permit AeroMexico to engage in scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property and mail between AeroMexico’s authorized US gateway points and other points within the US for the purpose of blind-sector, codesharing services between the US gateway points and other points in the US on Delta Connection flights operated by Shuttle America and Chautauqua. AeroMexico also seeks a special authorization pursuant to 14 CFR Part 216 to permit AeroMexico to commingle traffic between Mexico and third countries (that is, traffic not in foreign air transportation) on the same services that carry traffic that is in foreign air transportation between Mexico and the United States and between the United States and third countries, in conjunction with third-country codesharing services with Delta/Delta Connection.

Shuttle America requests that its statement of authorization be valid for an indefinite period subject to the Department’s normal codeshare conditions, and the AeroMexico exemption and special authorization are requested for at least one year.

With only one Mexican designation remaining on the San Diego-Mexico City route and two designations on the San Diego-Guadalajara route, the SDCRAA needs more information to determine whether granting such authority is indeed in the public interest.

Answer of JetBlue Airways

Although JetBlue does not object to AeroMexico operating these routes, or Delta placing its code on them, JetBlue wishes to reiterate the issues US carriers are experiencing with the severely constrained slot procedures at Mexico City International Airport and the lack of transparency in the slot application and award process at that facility. Further detail on these issues is contained in the following submissions: Answer of JetBlue Airways Corporation, Docket OST-2011-0159 (October 13 2015); Motion of JetBlue Airways Corporation to Require Submission of Additional Documents and Data, Docket OST-2015-0070 (July 2, 2015); Motion for Leave to File and Reply of JetBlue Airways Corporation, Docket OST-2015-0070 (July 21, 2015).

Delta Air Lines Response to Answer of JetBlue Airways

JetBlue’s Answer to Delta and AeroMexico’s Joint Application dated March 23, 2016 does not object to any of the Joint Applicant’s requested authorities, and the Department should move forward with granting those authorities as expeditiously as possible. Rather than encouraging further grandstanding by JetBlue, discussion of the topics it raised should be reserved for a more appropriate forum. The Department need not address any of the issues raised by JetBlue to grant the requested authority and, therefore, the Joint Applicants respectfully request that the Department approve the requested exemption authorities and statement of authorization.

Counsel: Delta, Christopher Walker, 202-842-3949

OST-2000-7708 - Exemption/Statement of Authorization - US-Mexico Codesharing
OST-2016-0046 - Exemptions and Statements of Authorization - Mexico City/Guadalajara-Seattle

Filed March 18, 2016 | Issued April 22, 2016

Notice of Action Taken

Approved in part (Mexico City-Seattle exemption authority for AeroMexico), remainder (Guadalajara-Seattle exemption authority and statement of authorization for AeroMexico, and Guadalajara-Seattle codeshare-only exemption authority for Delta) deferred.

Delta requests the Department transmit the necessary codeshare designation to the Government of Mexico. We will handle that request separately through normal diplomatic channels at the appropriate time.

We note that the Government of Mexico has designated AeroMexico to serve the Mexico City-Seattle route and we will approve AeroMexico’s request for exemption authority to serve that market. We note, however, that we have not yet received notification from the Government of Mexico that it has designated AeroMexico to conduct services in the Guadalajara-Seattle market. Therefore, we will defer action on the request of Aeromexico for Guadalajara-Seattle exemption authority and a statement of authorization to display the Delta designator code on that route (and the associated waiver request), and the corresponding request of Delta for Guadalajara-Seattle codeshare-only exemption authority.

In reaching our decision, we have again taken note of the MEX slot concerns raised by JetBlue, which we continue to recognize as an important matter. However, as we have previously noted, this matter is being considered directly in our examination of the Delta-AeroMexico ATI application. We regard that as the appropriate forum to address JetBlue’s concerns, and we are disinclined to withhold authority from Aeromexico that is bilaterally authorized and otherwise in the public interest during the pendency of that proceeding, particularly when JetBlue has stated that it does not object to AeroMexico’s request. Under these circumstances, we find that grant of AeroMexico’s Mexico-City-Seattle exemption request is consistent with the public interest.

So that Delta may offer codeshare service on the Guadalajara-San Jose, CA route pursuant to its longstanding codeshare agreement with AeroMexico, the Joint Applicants also request codeshare exemption authority for Delta, and a statement of authorization authorizing AeroMexico to carry Delta’s code, in the market.

AeroMexico initially proposes daily Guadalajara-San Jose service with Boeing B737 aircraft beginning in October 2016.

Motion of Delta Air Lines for a Waiver of Dormancy Conditions and Notice of Service Level Changes

Delta hereby moves the Department for a temporary waiver of the dormancy period attached to Delta’s exemption authority to operate scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property, and mail between Atlanta, Georgia and Leon/Guanajuato, Mexico.

The current dormancy period for this authority expired before Delta was able to commence these services. Accordingly, Delta is requesting this temporary waiver of the dormancy period in order to bridge the gap between the end of the current dormancy period and the date by which Delta estimates it will be able to begin operating these services, i.e., until December 17, 2016.

In addition, Delta hereby notifies the Department that this own-metal service between Atlanta and Leon/Guanajuato will be on a seasonal, rather than a year-round, basis going forward.

Exemption for Aeromexico for an initial period of one year pursuant to 49 USC §40109, authorizing Aeromexico to engage in scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property, and mail between: 1) Mexico City, Mexico, and Seattle, Washington; and 2) Guadalajara, Mexico, and Seattle, Washington.

Our present action addresses the remaining portion of the Joint Applicants’ pending request, filed March 18, 2016, in the referenced Dockets, on which the Department previously deferred action. By Notice of Action Taken dated April 22, 2016, we granted exemption authority to Aeromexico for Mexico City-Seattle services. At that time, we noted that we had not yet received notification from the Government of Mexico that it had authorized Aeromexico to conduct services in the Guadalajara-Seattle city-pair market and to display the Delta code on such services, and we accordingly deferred action on (1) Aeromexico’s request for exemption authority for Guadalajara-Seattle services; (2) Aeromexico’s request for a statement of authorization to display Delta’s DL* code on flights operated by Aeromexico between Guadalajara and Seattle; and (3) a codeshare-only exemption authority for Delta to display its code on Aeromexico-operated Guadalajara-Seattle flights. We have now received the necessary notification from the Government of Mexico regarding the Guadalajara-Seattle market; therefore, we are now granting the remaining portion of the carriers’ requests.

Issued November 14, 2016

Notice of Action Taken

Our present action addresses the remaining portion of the Joint Applicants’ pending requests in the referenced Dockets, on which the Department previously deferred. At the time of our previous actions, we noted that we had not yet received notification from the Government of Mexico that it had authorized Aeromexico to conduct code-share services in the US-Mexico city-pair markets listed here. On August 21, 2016, the US-Mexico Air Transport Agreement signed on December 18, 2015 entered into force (the new Agreement). The new Agreement, among other things, removed the long-standing requirement that the US and Mexican governments convey codeshare authorizations to each other in writing. Therefore, we are granting those remaining portions of the carriers’ requests.

By Notices of Action Taken, dated June 17, 2014 and February 24, 2015, we granted exemption authority to Delta and AeroMexico, and statements of authorization to Delta, to provide services in various US-Mexico city-pair markets. At that time, we deferred action on AeroMexico’s request for exemption authority to provide codeshare service on flights operated by Delta between Los Angeles and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo. We also deferred on Delta’s request for a statement of authorization to display the “AM” designator code of AeroMexico on flights operated by Delta between Los Angeles and Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo.

By Notice of Action Taken, dated October 29, 2014, we granted Delta exemption authority for Atlanta-Monterrey services. At that time, we deferred action on Delta’s request for a statement of authorization to display the “AM*” designator code of AeroMexico on flights operated by Delta between Atlanta and Monterrey.

By Notice of Action Taken, dated December 2, 2014, we granted Delta exemption authority for Baltimore-Cancun service. At that time, we deferred action on AeroMexico’s request for exemption authority to provide codeshare service on flights operated by Delta in the Baltimore-Cancun market. We also deferred on Delta’s request for a statement of authorization to display the “AM” designator code of AeroMexico on flights operated by Delta between Baltimore-Cancun.

By Notice of Action Taken, dated March 27, 2015, we granted SkyWest and Delta exemption authority for Los Angeles-Leon/Guanajuato service. At that time, we deferred action on SkyWest’s request for a statement of authorization to display the “AM” designator code of AeroMexico on flights operated by SkyWest between Los Angeles and Leon/Guanajuato.

By Notice of Action Taken, dated April 11, 2014, we granted Compass and Delta exemption authority for Los Angeles-Monterrey service. At that time, we deferred action on Compass’ and Delta’s requests for statements of authorization to display the “AM” designator code of AeroMexico on flights operated by Compass and Delta between Los Angeles and Monterrey.

We note that AeroMexico has a pending application in Docket OST-2016-0209, requesting authority to the full extent available under the new Agreement between the United States and Mexico. We will address that application separately.

Joint Application for an Exemption and a Statement of Authorization

AeroMexico and Delta apply for:

  1. an exemption, pursuant to 49 USC § 40109 and for an initial period of two years, authorizing Aeromexico to operate such service in the Mexico City-Detroit market; and
  2. a statement of authorization, pursuant to 14 CFR Part 212 and of indefinite duration, permitting AeroMexico to display the DL* designator code of Delta on AeroMexico-operated flights in the Mexico City-Detroit market.

AeroMexico has applied for blanket Mexico-US permit and exemption authority to the full extent of the 2016 Air Transport Agreement between the United Mexican States and the United States. See Docket OST-2016-0209. Approval of the pending application would provide AeroMexico the necessary operating authority, but not the corresponding statement of authorization. The Joint Applicants are filing this application to ensure that both carriers can begin marketing, as soon as possible, Mexico City-Detroit service with AeroMexico’s Boeing B737 aircraft.

So that Delta may offer codeshare service on the Mexico City-Detroit route pursuant to its longstanding code-share agreement with AeroMexico, the Joint Applicants also request a statement of authorization for AeroMexico to carry Delta’s code in the market. Delta is fit, willing, and able to engage in these services on a codeshare basis. It already operates numerous US-Mexico transborder services under its broad US-Mexico exemption authority and its Route 901 certificate authority; both authorize Delta service in the Detroit-Mexico City market. See Notice of Action Taken dated Aug. 10, 2016 in Docket OST-2016-0142; Order 2010-3-12.

Mexico;
