Delta, Aerolineas Argentina and Cielos del Sur hereby apply for Statements of Authorization pursuant to 14 CFR Part 212, and for codeshare-only exemptions pursuant to 49 USC § 40109 to engage in reciprocal codeshare services.

Specifically, the Joint Applicants request the following authorities:

  • an exemption under 49 USC § 40109 permitting Delta to provide service on a codeshare only basis on Aerolineas and Austral flights to the full extent allowed under the US-Argentina Air Services Agreement, including specifically: (1) scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property, and mail between any points in the United States and four points in Argentina, and beyond to any point or points in South America, (2) scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property, and mail between any points in the United States and five additional points in Argentina on a codeshare basis only, and (3) scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property, and mail between any points in the United States and five additional points in Argentina on a codeshare basis only in conjunction with a designated airline of Argentina;
  • an exemption under 49 USC § 40109 permitting Aerolineas to provide service on a codeshare only basis on Delta and Delta Connection flights to the full extent allowed under the US-Argentina Air Services Agreement, including specifically: (1) scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property, and mail between points in Argentina and fourteen points in the United States, and beyond to three points in Canada, four points in Asia (except Japan, China, and the Philippines), eight points in Europe, four points in Mexico, and points in the Caribbean, Central America, and South America, (2) scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property and mail between points in Argentina and five additional points in the United States on a codeshare basis only, and (3) scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property, and mail between points in Argentina and five additional points in the United States on a codeshare basis only, in conjunction with a designated airline of the United States;
  • a blanket statement of authorization under 14 CFR Part 212 permitting the display of Aerolineas’ “AR*” code on flights operated by Delta to the full extent allowed under the US-Argentina Air Services Agreement, including specifically (1) between points in the United States, (2) between points in the United States and points in Argentina, and (3) between points in the United States and points in third countries, pursuant to the US-Argentina Air Services Agreement. Delta requests that this blanket statement of authorization extend to its Delta Connection2 regional affiliates which operate service for Delta within North America;
  • a blanket statement of authorization under 14 CFR Part 212 permitting the display of Delta’s “DL*” code on flights operated by Aerolineas to the full extent allowed under the US-Argentina Air Services Agreement, including specifically (1) between points in Argentina, (2) between points in Argentina and points in the United States, and (3) between points in Argentina and points in third countries, pursuant to the US-Argentina Air Services Agreement; and
  • a blanket statement of authorization under 14 CFR Part 212 permitting the display of Delta’s “DL*” code on flights operated by Austral to the full extent allowed under the US-Argentina Air Services Agreement, including specifically between points in Argentina.

The requested authorities are identical to those previously granted to the American Airlines/Lan Argentina codeshare partnership (See NOAT June 11, 2009 in Docket OST-2007-0034). These authorities will be used to transport only passengers traveling in foreign air transportation.

Worth, Denver, Detroit, Houston, Las Vegas, Los Angeles, Miami, Minneapolis/St. Paul, New York/Newark, Orlando, and Philadelphia as points for Argentine direct-carrier or codeshare service; Montreal, Toronto, Vancouver, and Cancun for service beyond the United States to Canada and Mexico; Phoenix, Salt Lake City, and New Orleans as three of five points for service on a code-share-only basis; and San Diego, San Francisco, San Juan, Seattle, and Washington, DC as points for service on a code-share-only basis with a designated US carrier

Amend existing blanket statement of authorization under 14 CFR Part 212 to permit Austral to display the DL* designator code of Delta Air Lines, Inc. on flights operated by Austral between (i) points in Argentina and; (ii) points in Argentina and points in third countries.

Austral currently holds a statement of authorization permitting it to engage in scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property and mail to the extent necessary to display Delta’s DL* designator code on flights operated by Austral only between points in Argentina.

Austral incorporates by reference and relies upon the codesharing notices filed previously in Docket OST-2011-0153 permitting display of Delta’s code on flights operated by Aerolineas Argentinas, as well as any future such notices submitted in Docket OST-2011-0153.

Joint Renewal Application

The Joint Applicants request renewal of the following authorities:

  1. a blanket statement of authorization pursuant to 14 CFR Part 212 to permit Aerolineas to display Delta’s “DL*” designator on flights operated by Aerolineas (1) between points in the United States, (2) between points in the United States and points in Argentina, and (3) between points in the United States and points in third countries, pursuant to the US-Argentina Air Services Agreement.;
  2. a blanket statement of authorization pursuant to 14 CFR Part 212 to permit Austral to display Delta’s “DL*” designator on flights operated by Austral between (1) points in Argentina and; (2) points in Argentina and points in third countries; and
  3. a blanket statement of authorization pursuant to 14 CFR Part 212 to permit Delta and its connection carriers to display Aerolineas’ “AR*” designator on flights operated by Delta (1) between points in the United States, (2) between points in the United States and points in Argentina, and (3) between points in the United States and points in third countries, pursuant to the ASA. Delta requests that its statement of authorization extend to its Delta Connection regional affiliates3 which operate service for Delta within North America.

Delta holds underlying route authority to serve between Atlanta and Buenos Aires (Route 798, Order 2001-1-14, renewal application pending in Docket OST-1999-6210). Delta also has a request for renewed exemption authority pending with the Department (See Application for Renewal of Exemption Authority filed June 13, 2019 in this Docket).

Aerolineas has long held permit authority to serve the United States (Order 1977-12-53) and currently provides nonstop service between Buenos Aires, on the one hand, and Miami and New York (JFK), on the other. Aerolineas and Austral also have broad exemption authority to provide codeshare service with Delta (See Notice of Action Taken issued September 14, 2018 in this Docket).

Filed June 13, 2019 | Issued August 1, 2019

Notice of Action Taken

OST-2007-26805 - Exemption for two years for:

Scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property, and mail between (1) a point or points in the United States, on the one hand, and Kaliningrad, Russia; Khabarovsk, Russia; Magadan, Russia; Nizhniy Novgorod, Russia; Novosibirsk, Russia; Petropavlovsk-Kamchatski, Russia; Samara, Russia; Vladivostok, Russia; Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Russia; and Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan, on the other hand; (2) between a point or points in the United States, on the one hand, and Sochi, Russia; Chelyabinsk, Russia; Volgograd, Russia; Perm, Russia; Irkutsk, Russia; Ufa, Russia; Kazan, Russia; Yerevan, Armenia; and Baku, Azerbaijan, on the other hand; and (3) between Miami, Florida, on the one hand, and Moscow, Russia, on the other hand.

In Delta’s July 24, 2019 application in Docket OST-2007-26805, filed jointly with Aeroflot, Delta states that certain points were inadvertently omitted from its exemption renewal requests filed in that docket on June 17, 2015, and April 26, 2017. Specifically, the authority to serve (1) between a point or points in the United States, on the one hand, and Sochi, Russia; Chelyabinsk, Russia; Volgograd, Russia; Perm, Russia; Irkutsk, Russia; Ufa, Russia; Kazan, Russia; Yerevan, Armenia; and Baku, Azerbaijan, on the other hand, and (2) between Miami, Florida, on the one hand, and Moscow, Russia, on the other hand. Delta requests that the Department’s approval of this pending application include these omitted points along with those listed in the latest renewal action, Notice of Action Taken dated May 19, 2017, in Docket OST-2007-26805.

OST-2009-0186 - Dismissed as moot:

The US-Grenada Open-Skies Agreement entered into force on April 10, 2018, thus the exemption authority for which Delta seeks is subsumed by Delta’s blanket open skies certificate (see Order 2007-4-27). Subsequent to filing the instant application, Delta informally advised us that this portion of the exemption request could be dismissed.

OST-2011-0153 - Exemption for two years for:

Scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property, and mail, on a codeshare-only basis on Aerolineas Argentinas S.A. and Austral Lineas Aereas-Cielos Del Sur S.A. flights, (1) between any points in the United States and four (4) points in Argentina, and beyond to any point or points in South America; (2) between any points in the United States and five (5) additional points in Argentina on a code-share basis only; and (3) scheduled foreign air transportation of persons, property, and mail between any points in the United States and five (5) additional points in Argentina on a codeshare basis only in conjunction with a designated airline of Argentina.

Delta’s previous exemption authority for the routes addressed in this NOAT lapsed when it did not seek timely renewal. Thus, although Delta styled its present application as a renewal request, the application in fact constitutes a request for new exemption authority. We also note in this regard that the corresponding statements of authorization granted to Aeroflot, Aerolineas, and Austral, respectively, also ceased to be in effect pursuant to our standard code-share conditions. See Appendix C, paragraph (a) in Notices of Action Taken dated December 6, 2013, in Docket OST-2007-26805 (Aeroflot), and December 20, 2011, in Docket OST-2011-0153 (Aerolineas and Austral). We are acting concurrently on the separate applications to reinstate the lapsed statements of authorization in the respective dockets. Our actions do not serve to insulate any of the carriers involved from any enforcement action which may be taken by the Assistant General Counsel for Aviation Enforcement and Proceedings.
