OST-2018-0063 - Antonov Airlines - Laredo-Detroit Emergency Exemption
OST-2018-0063 - Emergency Exemption - Laredo-Detroit
Antonov Company t/a Antonov Airlines hereby applies for an emergency exemption pursuant to 49 USC §§ 40109(g) and 41703(c) to permit Antonov to operate a single one-way all-cargo charter flight transporting a heavy truck panel mold, plus ancillary parts and support equipment, from Laredo, Texas to Detroit, Michigan, May 4-7, 2018, using an AN-124-100 aircraft. Antonov respectfully requests expedited consideration and approval of this application today to address a pressing commercial requirement of Daimler Trucks North America LLC.
Daimler Trucks urgently requires delivery of truck panel molds to Detroit in order to avoid costly disruptions to Class 8 truck production. Active On-Demand Inc. is acting on Daimler Truck’s behalf to arrange the timely delivery of these panel molds and has chartered Antonov to operate one flight transporting one mold from Laredo, TX to Detroit, MI. The unit that needs to be transported measures approximately 86” x 68” x 75” but weighs approximately 74,000 lbs. Antonov is advised by the charterer that a unit of this weight and density could not be carried by freighter aircraft operated by US air carriers. As a result, the cargo needs to be transported using Antonov’s AN-124-100 aircraft.
Counsel: Hogan Lovells, Patrick Rizzi, 202-637-5959
Exemption from 49 USC § 40109(g) to permit the applicant to operate one, one-way, all-cargo charter flight, using its AN-124-100 aircraft, carrying cargo for Active On-Demand Inc. on behalf of Daimler Trucks North America LLC between Laredo, Texas, and Detroit, Michigan, on or about May 4-7, 2018. The applicant states that the cargo to be transported consists of a heavy truck panel mold, ancillary parts, and support equipment. The applicant asserts that Daimler Trucks urgently requires delivery of truck panel molds in order to avoid costly disruptions to its Class 8 truck production; that it has been advised by the charterer that a shipment of this weight and density could not be carried by US civil freighter aircraft; that delay of the shipment would be unduly harmful and costly to Daimler Trucks and the employees and users who are relying on the timely and uninterrupted production of the affected vehicles; and that surface transportation is not feasible because of the urgency of the shipment and potential for damage and further delivery delays.
