OST-2006-24269 - Foreign Government Reciprocity - Effectiveness of New Provisions Under 14 CFR 212


Foreign Government Reciprocity - Effectiveness of New Provisions Under 14 CFR 212

OST-2006-24269

Served March 12, 2006

Notice to All Foreign Air Carriers

The Department recently issued a final rule amending 14 CFR Part 212, Charter Rules for U.S. and Foreign Direct Air Carriers. The revisions to the rule will become effective April 4, 2006.

Among other things, the amended rule will require that a foreign air carrier applying for a statement of authorization under 14 CFR §212.9-10 to conduct fifth-freedom charter operations provide additional information to the Department. Specifically, it must provide a certification of reciprocity from its homeland government (or cite a previously-submitted certification dated within the preceding six months). That certification must state whether the nation which is the domicile of the applicant grants to U.S. air carriers a privilege similar to that requested by the applicant foreign air carrier. In its application for a statement of authorization, the applicant foreign air carrier must state if and when that certification was submitted to the Department.

In addition, an applicant foreign air carrier must also provide certain operational data, specifically, the number of one-way third- and fourth-freedom flights the applicant operated in the preceding twelve-month period or calendar year.

The purpose of this Notice is to remind affected foreign air carriers of their responsibility to comply with these new requirements in applying to the Department on or after April 4, 2006, for statements of authorization to conduct fifth-freedom charter operations. The Department will consider any application filed on or after that date without the additional information described above to be incomplete, and will not act on such requests unless and until the applicant files the requisite information.

In order to facilitate the ability of foreign air carriers to cite relevant reciprocity certifications, the Department has established a Docket, OST-2006-24269, into which we ask all foreign air carriers to file their reciprocity certifications. This will provide a central location for certificates that foreign carriers, the Department, and other interested parties can easily access and reference in applications.

Re: Reciprocity Statement of The Republic of South Africa

Re: Comments of French Civil Aviation Authority

Your connpany has asked the United States authorities for approval to make two nonscheduled flights between Dusseldorf and Detroit and between Pittsburgh and Doha (Qatar). By virtue of the Air Transport Agreement of APRIL 30, 2007 between the European Union and the United States, it is possible to make the first of these two flights. The second flight, however, falls outside the scope of this legal framework, as it does not land in the European Union.

It is my understanding that American authorities would investigate the possibility of granting reciprocal rights to an American transporter before giving extra-bilateral authorization for this flight.

I can assure you that, in terms of extra-bilateral authorization and on the basis of the principles of courtesy and reciprocity, the French aviation authorities would give favorable consideration to an equivalent request if it were introduced within the next twelve months by an air transporter from the United States of America.
