SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: FOR FURTHER INFORMATION CONTACT: Background On November 23, 2018, the Department issued a Federal Register notice indicating that the Department had reconstituted the Aviation Consumer Protection Advisory Committee, formerly known as the Advisory Committee on Aviation Consumer Protection, as a federal advisory committee. The FAA Reauthorization Act of 2018 (‘‘2018 FAA Act’’), signed by President Trump on October 5, 2018, extended the authorization for the ACPAC from September 30, 2018, to September 30, 2023. The Department has appointed new members to the ACPAC, and established the Task Force as an ACPAC subcommittee. The Department had also announced that the first meeting of the reestablished ACPAC would take place on January 16, 2019. See 83 FR 59447. Due to a lapse in funding for the Department, that meeting was canceled. The rescheduled first meeting of the reestablished ACPAC will be held on April 4, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Additionally, DOT will stream the event live on the internet and provide a link to the recorded webcast for future viewing at https://www.transportation.gov/ airconsumer/ACPAC. During the first meeting, there will be a discussion of three topics: (1) The duties of the Task Force members; (2) the transparency of airline ancillary service fees; and (3) and involuntary changes to itineraries. The Joint Explanatory Statement of the 2018 Consolidated Appropriations Act requests that the Department work in collaboration with industry, consumers and other stakeholders to establish guidelines on transparency of airline ancillary fees. In addition, the 2018 FAA Act mandates that the Department review and make recommendations with regard to air carriers’ handling of involuntary changes to passengers’ travel itineraries, and that the Department may consult with the VerDate Sep<11>2014 17:54 Mar 18, 2019 Jkt 247001 Committee for this purpose. Accordingly, the Committee will discuss these issues during the meeting. Members of the public may present written comments at any time. The docket number referenced above (DOT– OST–2018–0190) has been established for committee documents including any written comments that may be filed. At the discretion of the Chairperson and time permitting, after completion of the planned agenda, individual members of the public may provide oral comments.

Individual members of the public who wish to present oral comments must notify the Department of Transportation contact noted above via email that they wish to attend and present oral comments no later than Wednesday, March 27, 2019.
