Order 2019-7-9 - Ground Handling Operations of Foreign Air Carriers of India - Final Order - Suspension of Air India and Jet Airways Right to Self-Handle at US Airports
Ground Handling Operations of Foreign Air Carriers of India / National Aviation Company of India Limited d/b/a Air India / Jet Airways (India) Ltd.
Issued May 28, 2019 | Served July 30, 2019
In light of the fact that no party filed an objection to the Department’s tentative decision (Order 2019-4-16), and of the continuing failure of the Government of India to allow US carriers to exercise their bilateral right to self-handle at airports in India, we have decided to finalize our tentative decision to amend the Air India and Jet Airways’ foreign air carrier permits to suspend the rights of those carriers to self-handle at US airports. We find that this action is required by the public interest.
With respect to the response of Kalitta, while the carrier itself acknowledges that its concern goes to a matter other than ground handling, we recognize the importance of all US carriers having the ability to exercise their bilateral rights, and all the more so in emergency circumstances. As we have advised the Government of India in the course of addressing the self-handling issue, we expect it to fully honor all of the bilateral rights provided for in the US-India Air Transport Agreement, including issues raised by US carriers unrelated to self-handling.
