ACTION: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has tentatively determined that it will be necessary to place temporary limitations on flight operations at New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LaGuardia), as described in this proposed order. The period during which the FAA anticipates that these limitations will remain in effect is January 2, 2007, through September 30, 2007. FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Komal Jain, Regulations Division, Office of the Chief Counsel; Telephone: (202) 267–3073; E-mail: komal.jain@faa.gov. SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: SUMMARY: Proposed Order and Request for Comments The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has tentatively determined that it will be necessary to place temporary limitations on flight operations at New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LaGuardia), as described in this proposed order. The period during which the FAA anticipates that these limitations will remain in effect is January 2, 2007, through September 30, 2007. The FAA invites air carriers and other interested persons to submit written comments on this proposal in Docket FAA–2006– 25755. After reviewing and evaluating the comments, the FAA expects to issue a final order on this proposal. In the absence of the operational limitations proposed in this order, the FAA anticipates a return of the congestion-related delays that the traveling public experienced in 2000. These delays were not limited to LaGuardia, but spread to other airports throughout the National Airspace System (NAS). In a separate docket, the FAA is soliciting public comments on a proposed rule that would limit the number of scheduled and unscheduled operations at LaGuardia (2006 PO 00000 Frm 00069 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 54331 LaGuardia NPRM).1 The FAA expects that the expiration of the operational limitations under this proposed order would coincide with the effective date of any final rule that the FAA adopts in the related rulemaking proceeding. The FAA’s authority to limit the number of flight operations at LaGuardia is an essential component of the FAA’s statutory responsibilities. The FAA holds broad authority under 49 U.S.C. 40103(b) to regulate the use of the navigable airspace of the United States. This provision authorizes the FAA to develop plans and policy for the use of navigable airspace and, by order or rule, to regulate the use of the airspace as necessary to ensure its efficient use. I. Background As a result of LaGuardia’s history of congestion-related delays, the FAA, over the course of nearly forty years, applied increasingly detailed rules to govern the allocation and use of limited capacity at the airport.2 These regulations, collectively known as the High Density Rule and the Buy-Sell Rule (slot rules), were effective at controlling congestion at LaGuardia. In 2000, however, out of concern with the collateral effects of the slot rules at LaGuardia on airport access and competition, Congress elected to phase out the slot regulations at the airport under the Wendell H. Ford Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century (AIR–21).3 Congress simultaneously directed the U.S. Department of Transportation, effective immediately, to grant all applications for exemptions from the slot rules for specific types of flight, i.e., flights operated by new entrant carriers and flights that would serve small hub and non-hub airports with aircraft with less than 71 seats operations.4 By statute, the slot rules will expire at LaGuardia after January 1, 2007.5 As carriers began using the slot exemptions permitted under AIR–21, the number of scheduled flight operations at LaGuardia began to far exceed the airport’s capacity even under optimal operating conditions.6 With no new airport infrastructure or air traffic control procedures, overall airport capacity remained the same while the 1 Docket FAA–2006–25709; 71 FR 51360. 33 FR 17,896, 17,898 (Dec. 3, 1968); 34 FR 2603 (Feb. 26, 1969); cf. 14 CFR 93.121–93.133, 93.211–93.227 (2006) 3 Public Law No. 106–181, § 231, 114 Stat. 61, 106–10 (2000) (codified at 49 U.S.C. 41714–16). 4 49 U.S.C. 41716. 5 49 U.S.C. 41715(a)(2). 6 The increase in scheduled operations at LaGuardia is described more fully at 66 FR 31,731, 31,732–34 (June 12, 2001). 2 See E:\FR\FM\14SEN1.SGM 14SEN1
