Notice. AGENCY: ACTION: SUMMARY: The Essential Air Service (EAS) program was created in 1978, as part of the Airline Deregulation Act of 1978, to ensure that small and isolated communities continued to receive air service by providing federal subsidy when necessary to maintain continuous service. 49 U.S.C. 41731. Vision 100— Century of Aviation Reauthorization Act, Pub. L. 108–176, Title IV, Subtitle A, Section 406, requires the Secretary of Transportation to establish a pilot program, under which the Secretary may require air carriers receiving EAS subsidy and major carriers serving large hub airports to participate in code-share arrangements for up to 10 EAS communities. The statutory language reads as follows: SEC. 406. CODE-SHARING PROGRAM. (a) IN GENERAL.—The Secretary of Transportation shall establish a pilot program under which the Secretary may require air carriers providing air service with compensation under subchapter II of chapter 417 of title 49, United States Code, and major carriers (as defined in section 41716(a)(2) of such title) serving large hub airports (as defined in section 40102 of such title) to participate in multiple code-share arrangements consistent with normal industry practice whenever and wherever the PO 00000 Frm 00112 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 Secretary determines that such multiple code-sharing arrangements would improve air transportation services. (b) LIMITATION.—The Secretary may not require air carriers to participate in the pilot program under this section for more than 10 communities receiving service under subchapter II of chapter 417 of title 49, United States Code. This language appears to contemplate mandatory code-sharing between major carriers and carriers receiving EAS subsidy. The Department is interested in receiving comments concerning: (a) Interest by air carriers in participating in the pilot program, (b) suggestions as to how such a pilot program should be structured, and (c) potential consequences if the statutory language concerning code-share agreements was implemented.
