Establishment of the Standard Foreign Fare Level

Order 2005-6-9
OST-2005-20332

Issued June 13, 2005 | Served June 16, 2005

Order

In projecting the SFFL adjustment effective April 1, 2005, the staff used the latest available monthly fuel price data reported to the Department by the carriers and used a least squares analysis to project fuel prices to May 1, 2005.

The resulting projections are fuel prices on May 1, 2005 of 139.23 cents per gallon in the Atlantic, 148.58 cents per gallon in Latin America and 142.98 cents per gallon in the Pacific. Unit non-fuel costs for the 12 months ended December 31, 2004 decreased by 3.28 percent for the Atlantic Entity, 6.75 percent for the Latin American Entity and 0.65 percent for the Pacific Entity over the year ended December 31, 2003.

Based on our calculation, we find the cost adjustment factor over the October 1, 1979 level to be 53.32 percent in the Atlantic, 51.58 percent in Latin America and 85.01 percent for the Pacific.

Effective April 1, 2005 fares may be increased by the following adjustment factors over the October 1979 level, as amended:

  • Atlantic  1.5332
  • Latin America  1.5158
  • Pacific 1.8501

Order Establishing Standard Foreign Fare Level

Order 2005-8-13, section 41509(e) of Title 49 of the United States Code requires that the Department establish a Standard Foreign Fare Level by adjusting the SFFL base periodically by percentage increases in actual operating costs per available seat-mile. The SFFL becomes the benchmark for measuring the statutory non-suspend zone set forth in that section. Effective June 1, 2005 fares may be increased by the following adjustment factors over the October 1979 level, as amended: Atlantic - 1.5215, Latin America - 1.5060 and Pacific - 1.8538.
