ACTION: Proposed Amendments and Request for Comments. SUMMARY: The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has tentatively determined that it is necessary to amend further its December 12, 2006 Order that temporarily caps scheduled operations at New York’s LaGuardia Airport (LaGuardia), pending the implementation of a longer-term regulation to manage congestion at the airport. In particular, we now propose to accept from air carriers voluntary reductions in scheduled operations at the airport to a targeted average of 71 hourly scheduled operations for the duration of the Order. This proposed reduction in flight operations at LaGuardia would not affect the number of unscheduled operations at the airport. The FAA is separately extending the Order’s expiration until 11:59 p.m., Eastern Time, on October 24, 2009. VerDate Aug<31>2005 18:45 Dec 23, 2008 Jkt 217001 Send your comments on this proposed amendment to the Order on or before January 5, 2009.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: PO 00000 Frm 00163 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 79201 I. Background As a result of the limited capacity of LaGuardia’s two-runway configuration, the airport cannot accommodate the number of scheduled flights that airlines would like to operate there without causing significant congestion-related delays. This circumstance long ago led the FAA to limit the number of scheduled arrivals and departures at LaGuardia during the peak hours of demand.1 The FAA ultimately relied on the High Density Rule 2—its initial mechanism to control congestion at LaGuardia—for nearly 40 years. The High Density Rule limited the number of scheduled operations at the airport to 62 per hour. In a statute enacted in April 2000, Congress began to phase out the High Density Rule at LaGuardia and other airports.3 Before fully extinguishing the High Density Rule at LaGuardia on January 1, 2007, the statute immediately authorized a number of exemptions from the High Density Rule for specific types of scheduled operations.4 Demand for exemptions to operate scheduled service at LaGuardia soared. By November 2000, the debilitating delays that resulted from the surging demand required the FAA to roll back and cap the number of scheduled operations at LaGuardia.5 The FAA did not roll back the scheduled operations to the number that airlines conducted before the surge, instead capping the operations at a more elevated total of 75 hourly departures and arrivals. In the ensuing years, the FAA examined and proposed various alternatives to the High Density Rule in an effort to control congestion at LaGuardia.6 When it became apparent that the FAA would not have a replacement rule in place before the High Density Rule expired at LaGuardia, and recognizing that LaGuardia is prone to overscheduling, the FAA proposed and finalized an interim Order that capped the number of operations at the airport until the FAA could finalize a rule.7 The interim Order, which is the subject of this proposed amendment, retained the cap of 75 hourly scheduled 1 33 FR 17896, 17898 (Dec. 3, 1968); 34 FR 2603 (Feb. 26, 1969). 2 14 CFR part 93, subpart K. 3 49 U.S.C. 41715(a)(2). 4 49 U.S.C. 41716. 5 65 FR 69126, 69127–28 (Nov. 15, 2000). 6 71 FR 51,360 (Aug. 29, 2006) (Notice of Proposed Rulemaking); 73 FR 20,846 (April 17, 2008) (Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking). 7 71 FR 77,854 (Dec. 27, 2006). The FAA previously amended the original order in November 2007 (72 FR 63,224) and August 2008 (73 FR 48,428). E:\FR\FM\24DEN1.SGM 24DEN1
