Congestion Management Rule for LaGuardia Airport; Correction, 66517 [E8-26568]

In the final rule, the FAA intended the initial reversion of slots for auction to take effect 30 days after the final rule’s effective date, which would be January 8, 2009. This was the time period referenced in the final rule as approved by the Office of Management and Budget. The January 13, 2009 date published in the Federal Register reflects an incorrect time period of 35 days following the final rule effective date. At present, the FAA intends to auction the initial slate of slots on or about January 12, 2009. While the slots revert to the FAA under the rule on January 8, 2009, the FAA is not required to conduct the auction on that date, and no carrier will lose the ability to operate any slot that meets the usage requirements of the John F. Kennedy (JFK) and Newark Liberty (Newark) International Airport Orders before October 25, 2009.

AGENCY: SUMMARY: This establishes, amends, suspends, or revokes Standard Instrument Approach Procedures (SIAPs) and associated Takeoff Minimums and Obstacle Departure Procedures for operations at certain airports. These regulatory actions are needed because of the adoption of new or revised criteria, or because of changes occurring in the National Airspace System, such as the commissioning of new navigational facilities, adding new obstacles, or changing air traffic requirements. These changes are designed to provide safe and efficient use of the navigable airspace and to promote safe flight operations under instrument flight rules at the affected airports. This rule is effective November 10, 2008. The compliance date for each SIAP, associated Takeoff Minimums, and ODP is specified in the amendatory provisions. The incorporation by reference of certain publications listed in the regulations is approved by the Director of the Federal Register as of November 10, 2008.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------

SUMMARY: The FAA is correcting a final rule published in the October 
10, 2008, Federal Register. The final rule addressed congestion at New 
York's LaGuardia Airport (LaGuardia). The original rule incorrectly 
identified the date by which limited slots will revert to the FAA for

DATES: The final rule published on October 10, 2008 (73 FR 60574), and 
this correction will become effective on December 9, 2008.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    On October 10, 2008 (73 FR 60574), the FAA published a final rule 
that will grandfather most of the existing operations at the LaGuardia 
airport. However, carriers will be required, for the first time, to 
purchase collectively approximately nine percent of the slots at the 
airport. There are no carve-outs or special provisions for new entrants 
or limited incumbents. The rule will improve the efficiency of the 
National Airspace System by forcing a market-based mechanism for 
establishing the value of slots. Under prevailing economic theory, once 
the true value of slots is assessed, carriers will make financial 
business decisions that would maximize the slots' use.

Correction

    In the final rule, the FAA intended the initial reversion of slots 
for auction to take effect 30 days after the final rule's effective 
date, which would be January 8, 2009. This was the time period 
referenced in the final rule as approved by the Office of Management 
and Budget. The January 13, 2009 date published in the Federal Register 
reflects an incorrect time period of 35 days following the final rule 
effective date.
    At present, the FAA intends to auction the initial slate of slots 
on or about January 12, 2009. While the slots revert to the FAA under 
the rule on January 8, 2009, the FAA is not required to conduct the 
auction on that date, and no carrier will lose the ability to operate 
any slot that meets the usage requirements of the LaGuardia Order 
before March 8, 2009. Accordingly, this correction notice will have no 
practical impact on carriers operating at the airport.
