2009/10 US-China Charter Authorizations


2009/10 US-China Charter Authorizations

Served July 28, 2009

Notice - August 1, 2009-July 31, 2010

By this Notice we notify U.S. carriers of procedures to distribute available charter opportunities between the United States and the People’s Republic of China for the 2009/2010 charter year (August 1, 2009, through July 31, 2010).

Under the US-China Air Transport Agreement (as amended), each Party shall approve applications by the airlines of the other Party for 75 one-way charter flights annually from August 1 of each year, between points in China Zone 1 (Zone 1) and U.S. points on city pairs served by Chinese carriers’ scheduled services of the same type (combination or all-cargo) as the proposed charter flight, and 75 one-way charter flights annually from August 1 of each year, between points in China Zone 2 (Zone 2) and U.S. points on city pairs served by Chinese carriers’ scheduled services of the same type (combination or all-cargo) as the proposed charter flight. These rights are available for the annual periods beginning August 1 each year.

China Zone 1 consists of Shanghai, Beijing, and Guangzhou. China Zone 2 consists of Fujian, Guangdong (except Guangzhou), Hebei, Jiangsu, Shandong, Tianjin, and Zhejiang.

We find that the public interest continues to warrant our placing the 75 Zone 1 charters, and the 75 Zone 2 charters, into a charter pool for distribution on a first-come, first-served basis, consistent with the modified procedures that were implemented for the 2007/2008 China charter year and with those used in other similar markets with limited charter opportunities (See Notice dated July 26, 2007, in Docket OST-2007-28824 (China), Order 2009-1-5 (Brazil) and Orders 1992-6-32 and 1992-9-21 (Japan)).
