Order Granting Exemptions, Amending/Reissuing Statements of Authorization, Amending Part 375 Special Authorizations, and to Show Cause

Appendix A - Existing Authorities Held by UK Carriers

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.

We dismiss as moot the applications of CargoLogicAir Limited in Docket OST-2016-0063 and ExecuJet (UK) Limited d/b/a ExecuJet Europe in Docket OST-2018-0052.
