Re-application for an Exemption

VIP Empresarial, S.A. de C.V. hereby re-applies for an exemption from 49 USC §41301, which previously authorized VIP Empresarial to engage in charter foreign air transportation of passengers between Mexico and the United States, and other passenger charter operations in accordance with 14 CFR Part 212, using small aircraft. The Department previously granted the aforementioned authority to VIP Empresarial pursuant to a Notice of Action Taken dated February 13, 2013 in Docket OST-2007-28270. This authority was not renewed because VIP Empresarial sold its aircraft.

VIP Empresarial was originally incorporated in Mexico in 1997 as an air taxi to provide air transportation service to a host of important business executives based in and around the city of Monterrey in the Mexican state of Nuevo Leon. In 2012 the company sold its Hawker 700A aircraft bearing Mexican registration XA-BYP. Today, after corporate reconstruction and the purchase of a new aircraft, VIP Empresarial provides passenger air transportation services to support its operations within Mexico and intends to provide commercial passenger charter operations between Mexico and the US.
