Application for an Exemption and a Foreign Air Carrier Permit - Bookmarked

JetClub AG, a Swiss foreign air carrier, hereby applies for an exemption and a foreign air carrier permit authorizing JetClub to provide the following service using small aircraft:

JetClub requests that its application be decided on the basis of written submissions pursuant to 14 C.F.R. § 302.207 and the Streamlined Licensing Procedures Notice. Specifically, JetClub requests that the Department promptly issue a single Order under the show-cause procedures described in the Streamlined Licensing Procedures Notice (a) granting the requested exemption authority for a period of two years, or until the effective date of JetClub's final foreign air carrier permit, whichever occurs first, and (b) tentatively awarding the corresponding foreign air carrier permit. As soon as possible thereafter, JetClub requests that the Department issue a Final Order issuing the Company its foreign air carrier permit for a period of indefinite duration.

There are currently nine jet aircraft in JetClub's fleet, including two Gulfstream V aircraft, one Gulfstream IV, one Challenger 601, one Falcon 900, one Learjet 60, and one Cessna Citation Excel, all of which are well‑suited for transatlantic operations. In order to expand its on‑demand charter air services to include service with these aircraft to and from points in the United States, JetClub is seeking its initial DOT exemption and foreign air carrier permit.

Motion for Confidential Treatment

JetClub hereby moves to withhold from public disclosure the contents of Exhibit D of its Application for an Exemption and a Foreign Air Carrier Permit. Exhibit D consists of the Company's financial statements, including balance sheets and profit and loss accounts, as of December 31, 2004 and 2003.

Under Swiss law, JetClub is not required to publicly disclose these financial statements, and the Company therefore would not customarily release this information. Disclosure of this information would cause substantial competitive harm to JetClub in that its competitors, customers and other third-parties would gain access to sensitive financial and business information about the Company, thereby placing it at a competitive disadvantage. Moreover, the Department's disclosure of this type of confidential financial information would undoubtedly impair the ability of the Department to obtain such information in the future.

Order 2006-12-7
OST-2006-24576 - Exemption - Switzerland-US

Issued and Served December 8, 2006

Order Granting Exemption and to Show Cause

We grant the request of Jet Club AG for an exemption under 49 U.S.C. §40109 to permit it to engage in charter foreign air transportation of persons, property and mail, using small aircraft, (1) between any point or points in Switzerland and any point or points in the United States; (2) between any point or points in the United States and any point or points in a third country or countries, provided that such service constitutes part of a continuous operation, with or without a change of aircraft, that includes air service to Switzerland for the purpose of carrying local traffic between Switzerland and the United States; and (3) other charters between third countries and the United States in accordance with 14 CFR Part 212.

In the conduct of these operations, Jet Club AG may only use aircraft capable of carrying no more than 60 passengers and having a maximum payload capacity of no more than 18,000 pounds.

We tentatively find and conclude that the public interest warrants granting the applicant a foreign air carrier permit. In particular, we tentatively find and conclude that the factors which support our grant of exemption authority to the applicant also warrant granting the applicant the foreign air carrier permit it seeks

With respect to the applicant's request for a foreign air carrier permit in this proceeding, we direct all interested persons to show cause why our tentative decision on that application, set forth above, should not be made final.
