ACTION: Notice of amendment to Order. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) is amending the Order Limiting Operations at New York LaGuardia Airport (LGA) that published on December 27, 2006, and was SUMMARY: VerDate Nov<24>2008 13:57 Jan 07, 2009 Jkt 217001 Due to LaGuardia’s limited runway capacity, the airport cannot accommodate the number of flights that airlines and others would like to operate without causing significant congestion. The FAA has long limited the number of arrivals and departures at LaGuardia during peak demand periods through the promulgation and implementation of the High Density Rule (HDR).1 By statute enacted in April 2000, the HDR’s 1 33 FR 17896 (Dec. 3, 1968). The FAA codified the rules for operating at high density traffic airports in 14 CFR part 93, subpart K. The HDR required carriers to hold a reservation, which came to be known as a ‘‘slot,’’ for each takeoff or landing under instrument flight rules at the high density traffic airports. PO 00000 Frm 00053 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 845 applicability to LaGuardia operations terminated as of January 1, 2007.2 In anticipation of the HDR’s expiration, the FAA proposed a longterm rule that would limit the number of scheduled and unscheduled operations at LaGuardia.3 Because the FAA could not complete that rulemaking by January 1, 2007, the FAA issued an Order on December 27, 2006, adopting temporary limits pending the completion of the rulemaking.4 This Order was amended on November 8, 2007, and August 19, 2008.5 Under the Order, as amended, the FAA (1) maintains the current hourly limits on scheduled (75) and unscheduled (three) operations at LaGuardia during peak period; (2) imposes an 80 percent minimum usage requirement for OAs with defined exceptions; (3) provides a mechanism for withdrawal of OAs for FAA operational reasons; (4) provides for a lottery to reallocate withdrawn, surrendered, or unallocated OAs; and (5) allows for trades and leases of OAs for consideration for the duration of the Order. Without the operational limitations imposed by this Order, the FAA expected severe congestion related delays would occur at LGA and at other airports throughout the National Airspace System (NAS) resulting from capacity constraints at LGA. On October 10, 2008, the FAA published the ‘‘Congestion Management Rule for LaGuardia Airport’’ final rule (‘‘Congestion Management Rule’’).6 The Congestion Management Rule would have become effective on December 9, 2008. The Congestion Management Rule imposes limitations on scheduled and unscheduled operations. Several parties petitioned for review of the Congestion Management Rule and sought a stay of that rule.7 On December 8, 2008, the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit stayed the Congestion Management Rule, which rendered it temporarily ineffective. To prevent this Order from expiring prior while the litigation is pending, the FAA has concluded that it is necessary to extend 2 Aviation Investment and Reform Act for the 21st Century (AIR–2 1), Public Law 106–181 (Apr. 5, 2000), 49 U.S.C. 41715(a)(2). 3 71 FR 51360 (August 29, 2006); Docket FAA– 2006–25709. The FAA subsequently published a Supplemental Notice of Proposed Rulemaking. 73 FR 20846 (Apr. 17, 2008). 4 71 FR 77854. 5 72 FR 63224; 73 FR 48428. 6 73 FR 60574; amended by 73 FR 66517, Nov. 10, 2008. 7 Port Auth. of New York & New Jersey v.
