OST-2008-0384 - Statements of Authorization - US-Egypt Codesharing

December 10, 2008

Joint Application for Statements of Authorization

United requests that the Department grant it a statement of authorization to permit United to display EgyptAir's "MS" designator code on flights operated by United between any point or points in the United States on a blind sector basis; between any point or points in the United States and any point or points in Egypt (either non-stop or via intermediate points) and beyond; and between any point or points in the United States and any point or points in third countries.

United currently holds a certificate of public convenience and necessity for Route 57 last issued by Order 1983-3-77, which authorizes United to engage in scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property and mail between points in the United States and Egypt. United also holds certificate authority to integrate its routes operated under various certificates and exemptions.

EgyptAir requests that the Department grant it a statement of authorization to permit EgyptAir to display United's "UA" designator code on flights operated by EgyptAir between any point or points in Egypt; between any point or points in Egypt and any point in the United States, either non-stop or via intermediate points; and between any point or points in Egypt and any point or points in third countries.

EgyptAir is a foreign air carrier of Egypt operating scheduled services between Cairo and New York City under a foreign air carrier permit issued by the Department pursuant to the U.S.-Egypt Air Transport Services Agreement, entered into force on April 7, 1965, as amended. See, Order 1988-8-53. On this date, EgyptAir is also applying for exemption authority to authorize it to offer code-share service between points in Egypt, on the one hand, and Chicago, IL, Los Angeles, CA, San Francisco, CA, and Washington, DC, on the other hand, via the United Kingdom and New York City.

Department Action on Application

Joint application of United Air Lines, Inc. and EgyptAir for statements of authorization for an indefinite duration under 14 CFR Part 212 to permit (a) United to display the MS* designator code of EgyptAir on flights operated by United (1) between any point or points in the United States on a blind sector basis; (2) between any point or points in the United States and any point or points in Egypt (either non-stop or via intermediate points) and beyond; and (3) between any point or points in the United States and any point or points in third countries; and (b) EgyptAir to display the UA * designator code on flights operated by EgyptAir (1) between any point or points in Egypt; (2) between any point or points in Egypt and any point in the United States (either non-stop or via intermediate points); and (3) between any point or points in Egypt and any point or points in third countries.

EgyptAir's exemption authority to codeshare with United in Docket OST-2008-0383 lapsed when the carrier did not seek timely renewal. In this regard , the correspondin g statements of authorization held by United and EgyptAir in Docket OST-2008-0384 ceased to be in effect pursuant to our standard code-share conditions. See codeshare condition (a) in Notice of Action Taken dated April 2, 2009, in Dockets OST-2008-0383 and OST-2008-0384. Thus, although the Joint Applicants styled the present application as a renewal request, our action constitutes issuance of new statements of authorization. We are acting concurrently on EgyptAir's separate request to reinstate its expired exemption authority in Docket OST-2019-0094. Our actions do not serve to insulate the Joint Applicants from any enforcement action which may be taken by the Assistant General Counsel for Aviation Enforcement and Proceedings.
