The comments should address: (a) Whether the collection of information is necessary for the proper performance of the functions of the agency, including whether the information shall have practical utility; (b) the accuracy of the agency’s estimates of the burden of the collection of information; (c) ways to enhance the quality, utility, and clarity of the information to be collected; (d) ways to minimize the burden including the use of automated collection techniques or the use of other forms of information technology; and (e) the annual costs burden to respondents or record keepers from the collection of information (a total capital/startup costs and operations and maintenance costs). The comments that are submitted will be summarized and included in the CBP request for OMB approval. All comments will become a matter of public record. In this document, CBP is soliciting comments concerning the following information collection: Title: Request for Entry or Departure for Flights To and From Cuba. OMB Number: 1651–0134. Form Number: None. Abstract: Until recently, direct flights between the United States and Cuba were required to arrive or depart from one of three named U.S. airports: John F. Kennedy International Airport, Los Angeles International Airport, and Miami International Airport. On January 28, 2011, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) regulations were amended to allow additional U.S. airports that are able to process international flights to request approval of CBP to process authorized flights between the United States and Cuba. To be eligible to request approval to accept flights to and from Cuba, an airport must be an international airport, landing rights airport, or user fee airport, as defined and described in part 122 of the CBP regulations, and have adequate and up-to-date staffing, equipment and facilities to process international traffic. In order for an airport to seek approval to allow arriving and departing flights from Cuba, the port authority must send a written request to CBP requesting permission.
