Requested Administrative Waiver of the Coastwise Trade Laws: Vessel LOVE SONG (Sailboat); Invitation for Public Comments, 16990-16991 [2020-06239]

Download as PDF 16990 Federal Register / Vol. 85, No. 58 / Wednesday, March 25, 2020 / Notices khammond on DSKJM1Z7X2PROD with NOTICES the FAA to ‘‘issue a full usage waiver for the remainder of the summer 2020 IATA season.’’ American Airlines asserts that it ‘‘has taken unprecedented action to cut our schedules by more than 75% internationally and 30% domestically in April alone with significantly more cuts in May and beyond into the spring and summer months.’’ Other U.S. airlines also report significant capacity cuts in the coming months. Delta Air Lines announced on March 10, 2020, that to align capacity with expected demand, it is reducing system capacity by 15 points versus its plan, with international capacity reduced by 20–25%, and domestic capacity reduced by 10–15%. JetBlue Airways announced on March 18, 2020, that it will reduce its capacity by at least 40% in April and May, and it also expects substantial cuts in June and July. Southwest Airlines announced on March 20, 2020, that it has implemented a plan to reduce capacity by at least 20 percent for the period from April 14 through June 5, 2020, driven by a drop in travel demand due to the COVID–19 outbreak. On March 18, 2020, Airlines for America, which describes itself as an advocate for leading U.S. airlines, asserted that ‘‘cancellations far outpace new bookings for U.S. carriers, planes are only 20–30% full and new bookings are implying 70–80 percent declines in traffic even as airlines make dramatic cuts in capacity—and this is getting worse each day with no end in sight.’’ Opportunity To Show Cause In consideration of the foregoing information, the requests that the FAA has received, and the evolving situation, the FAA has tentatively determined to extend through October 24, 2020, the relief that the FAA has already granted through May 31, 2020, to continue on the same terms as the FAA announced in granting that relief. If the FAA extends relief to October 24, 2020, the FAA expects that foreign slot coordinators will provide reciprocal relief to U.S. carriers. To the extent that U.S. carriers fly to a foreign carrier’s home jurisdiction and that home jurisdiction does not offer reciprocal relief to U.S. carriers, the FAA may determine not to grant a waiver to that foreign carrier. A foreign carrier seeking a waiver may wish to ensure that the responsible authority of the foreign carrier’s home jurisdiction submits a statement by email to ScheduleFiling@ dot.gov confirming reciprocal treatment of the slot holdings of U.S. carriers. The Coronavirus continues to present a highly unusual and unpredictable condition that is beyond the control of carriers. Passenger demand continues to VerDate Sep<11>2014 16:18 Mar 24, 2020 Jkt 250001 decrease dramatically as a result of the Coronavirus. The ultimate duration and severity of Coronavirus impacts on passenger demand in the United States and internationally remain unclear. Even after the pandemic is contained, impacts on passenger demand are likely to continue for some time. The FAA tentatively has concluded that an extension of relief through October 24, 2020, is appropriate to provide carriers with maximum flexibility during this unprecedented situation and to support the long-term viability of carrier operations at slotcontrolled and IATA Level 2 airports in the United States.3 Continuing relief for this additional period is reasonable to mitigate the impacts on demand for air travel resulting from the spread of the Coronavirus worldwide. The FAA seeks views and information regarding this tentative decision. Interested persons are invited to show cause why the FAA should or should not finalize this decision, and to submit any information relevant to making this decision. Written views and supporting data may be submitted no later than March 30, 2020, by email to the Slot Administration Office at 7-awaslotadmin@faa.gov. Information submitted to the FAA may be subject to disclosure under the Freedom of Information Act. The FAA recognizes that commenters may seek to submit business information that is both customarily and actually treated as confidential. Persons that submit such confidential business information should clearly mark the information as ‘‘PROPIN’’. The FAA will take the necessary steps to protect properly designated information to the extent allowable by law. After receiving and reviewing comments, the FAA anticipates subsequently providing notice of its final decision. Issued in Washington, DC, on March 22, 2020.
