OST-2010-0202 - Exemption and Foreign Air Carrier Permit - EU-US Charters
August 9, 2010
Gama requests an exemption and a foreign air carrier permit to engage in charter foreign air transportation of persons, property and mail to the full extent authorized by the EU-US Agreement, as follows: (i) from any point or points behind any Member State of the European Union via any point or points in any Member State and via intermediate points to any point or points in the United States and beyond; (ii) between any point or points in the United States and any point or points in any member of the European Cornmon Aviation Area; and (iii) other charters pursuant to Part 212 of the Department's regulations. Gama is applying for authority to operate these services with business jet aircraft designed to have a maximum passenger capacity of not more than 60 seats or a maximum payload capacity of not more than 18,000 pounds.
Gama is an air carrier holding an Air Operator Certificate issued by the Civil Aviation Authority of the United Kingdom. As the UK is a Member State of the European Community, Gama is eligible for the streamlined application procedures applicable to the licensing of air carriers subject to the EU-US Agreement.

By this Order, the Department is taking, sua sponte, several regulatory actions in response to the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union (Brexit) and the application of a new air transport agreement between the United States and the United Kingdom. Specifically, effective January 1, 2021, we (1) grant certain foreign air carriers of the United Kingdom exemption authority under 49 USC §40109, subject to conditions; (2) amend/reissue statements of authorization held by certain UK carriers and/or their foreign and US carrier partners; (3) amend Part 375 special authorizations held by UK foreign civil aircraft operators; and (4) tentatively find that it is in the public interest to modify and reissue to certain foreign air carriers of the United Kingdom the foreign air carrier permits attached as Appendix C to this Order, also subject to conditions.
With respect to our tentative decision to modify and reissue foreign air carrier permits to the foreign air carriers of the United Kingdom as specified in the body of this Order, we direct all interested persons to show cause why our tentative decision, as set forth above, should not be made final. Any interested person objecting to the issuance of an order making final our tentative findings and conclusions with respect to the reissuance of foreign air carrier permits as specified in the body of this Order shall, no later than twenty-one calendar days after the date of service of this Order, file with the Department.
