Notice of Action U.S. - Mexico

Special conditions/Partial grant/Denial basis/Remarks: In the conduct of these operations, the carrier must adhere to all applicable provisions of the U.S.-Mexico Agreement. In the conduct of these operations, the carrier 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 (small equipment). The above grant includes authority to conduct Third and Fourth Freedom charter operations. While we have subjected, consistent with the provisions of the Agreement, Mexican carriers conducting charter operations with large aircraft to prior approval of their Third and Fourth Freedom charters (see Order 92-2-7 at 5), we determined that a Third/Fourth Freedom prior-approval requirement was not necessary on public interest grounds in the case of this carrier, since it will be conducting these operations solely with small aircraft. (Other charter operations to/from the United States under this authority, however, are subject to prior approval under 14 CFR Part 212.) Further, we are continuing to allow Mexican carriers conducting passenger charters using small equipment to make stopovers in the United States in the conduct of such operations.

Application for Renewal of Exemption

The aircraft is used by the principal companies of Grupo Mexico to conduct business in the United States. Approximately 30% of the total mineral production of the Grupo Mexico companies is exported to the United States and the aircraft is used on trips to meet with current and potential customers of Grupo Mexico and to visit Asarco's plants and offices in the U.S. (mining company that belongs to the same group). In addition, the Grupo Mexico companies rely on United States suppliers for machinery, equipment and supplies. Grupo Mexico total annual purchases from United States suppliers consistently exceed $100,000,000 and total annual purchases of goods and services from U.S. suppliers are expected to remain in this range. The Grupo Mexico companies rely on the aircraft for travel to negotiate and close agreements regarding exports to the United States and purchases of United States products for import into Mexico.
