Earlier, a Federal Register Notice with a 60-day comment period was published (73 FR 74223, December 5, 2008). The agency did not receive any comments to its previous notice.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: OMB Approval No.: 2106–0035. Title: Foreign Air Carrier Application for Statement of Authorization. Form No.: Form OST 4540. Type of Review: Extension of a currently approved collection. Respondents: Foreign Air Carriers. Number of Respondents: approximately 100. Estimated Time per Response: 2.25 hours per application. Total Annual Burden: 1,000 hours. Abstract: Applicants use Form OST 4540 to request statements of authorization to conduct numerous PO 00000 Frm 00076 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 types of operations authorized under Title 14, CFR Part 212. The form requires basic information regarding the carrier(s) conducting the operation, the party filing the form, the operations being conducted, the number of thirdand fourth-freedom flights conducted in the last twelve-month period, and certification of reciprocity from the carrier’s homeland government. DOT analysts will use the information collected to determine if applications for fifth-freedom operations meet the public interest requirements necessary to authorize such applications. Burden Statement: We estimate that the industry-wide total hour burden for this collection to be approximately 1,000 hours or approximately 2.25 hours per application. Conservatively, we estimate the compilation of background information will require 1.75 hours, and the completion and submission of OST Form 4540 will require thirty (30) minutes. Reporting the number of third- and fourth-freedom operations conducted by an applicant carrier will require collection of flight data, and detailed analysis to determine which flights conducted by the carrier are third- and fourth-freedom. Applicants should be able to use data collected for the Department’s T–100 program to provide this information (under this program, carriers are required periodically to compile and report certain traffic data to the Department, as more fully described in the Docket referenced in footnote 1 below). The Bureau of Transportation Statistics (BTS) provide carriers with a computer program that allows them to compile and monitor, among other things, flight origin and destination data, to be used in making the carriers’ T–100 submissions.1 We estimated that carriers will require 1.25 hours per application 2 to compile and analyze the data necessary to disclose the number of third- and fourth-freedom flights conducted within the twelve-month period preceding the filing of an application. Foreign carriers will also have to provide evidence that their homeland 1 The rule-making associated with the T–100 program can be found on the Federal Docket Management System (FDMS) at http:// www.regulations.gov, in Docket DOT–OST–1998– 4043. Information regarding burden hours is on file in the Office of Aviation Analysis (X–50). 2 The Office of Aviation Analysis (X–50) estimated that small carriers would require 1 burden hour per report, and large carriers would require 3 burden hours per report to analyze and report T–100 program data. Considering that the data required in this information collection can be derived from data already collected, we have taken an average of the estimated time required, and conservatively shortened the time by 45 minutes because no new data entry will be required.
