Issued and Served May 22, 2008
The record indicates that, through various holding companies and trusts, JetNetherlands is ultimately owned by Whitmill Trust Ltd, the beneficial owner of which is a citizen of the United Kingdom. JetNetherlands further states that its Managing Directors and all of its key management personnel are citizens of the Netherlands. In its application, the applicant specifically stated that it was applying to provide the services requested using small aircraft.
By Notice dated May 3, 2007, we invited foreign air carriers of the European Union to apply for Department economic authority to conduct operations to and from the United States under the U.S.-EU Air Transport Agreement. In that Notice, we stated that we anticipated handling these EU carrier requests on an expedited basis to ensure that affected EU carriers may receive the authority available to them under the new Agreement as quickly as possible. To that end, we stated our intent to process requests for this authority under the “streamlining” procedures set out in our August 23, 2005 Notice in Docket OST-2005-22228, in which we announced several steps designed to simplify our regulatory procedures for licensing foreign (and U.S.) air carriers. Our action in this Order serves to implement those streamlined regulatory procedures for the application involved in this proceeding.
