Download as PDF amozie on DSK30RV082PROD with NOTICES 13810 Federal Register / Vol. 83, No. 62 / Friday, March 30, 2018 / Notices administering the slot program for scheduled and unscheduled operations at DCA established under 14 CFR part 93, subparts K and S. The FAA utilizes the collected information to (1) allocate available air carrier slots; (2) execute slot transfers; (3) record slot returns; (4) approve slot reservations for unscheduled or ‘‘other’’ operators; and (5) track slot usage. Carriers at DCA are the primary providers of slot information to the FAA. The revision to the existing information collection approval would include information reported to the FAA by carriers holding a slot at JFK or LGA; by unscheduled operators at LGA; and by carriers operating scheduled flights at EWR, LAX, ORD, and SFO. At JFK, carriers must notify the FAA of: (1) Requests for confirmation of transferred slots; (2) requests for seasonal allocation of historic and additional available slots; (3) usage of slots on a seasonal basis; (4) the return of slots; and (5) changes to allocated slots. At LGA, carriers must notify the FAA of: (1) Requests for confirmation of transferred slots; (2) compulsory or voluntary slot returns; (3) requests to be included in a lottery for available slots; and (4) usage of slots on a bi-monthly basis. At LGA, unscheduled operators must request and obtain a reservation from the FAA prior to conducting an operation. At EWR, LAX, ORD and SFO, carriers are asked to notify the FAA of their intended operating schedules during peak hours on a semiannual basis and when there are significant schedule changes. The FAA estimates that all information from carriers is submitted electronically from data stored in carrier scheduling databases. Nearly all requests for unscheduled operation reservations are submitted electronically through either an internet or touch-tone system interface. Respondents: 140 carriers at various airports; unknown number of unscheduled operators at LGA and DCA. Frequency: Information is collected as needed; some reporting on bimonthly or semiannual basis. Estimated Average Burden per Response: 6 minutes per slot transfer per respondent (i.e. transferor and transferee); 6 minutes per slot return; 6 minutes per schedule update; 6 minutes per request for inclusion in a lottery; 2 minutes per unscheduled slot request; 1.5 hours per schedule submission; and 1 hour per slot usage report. Estimated Total Annual Burden: 5367 hours. VerDate Sep<11>2014 18:57 Mar 29, 2018 Jkt 244001 Issued in Fort Worth, TX, on March 23, 2018. Barbara L.
