Kennedy International Airport (JFK), New York LaGuardia Airport (LGA), and Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA) that the FAA has already made available through May 31, 2020. Similarly, the FAA has determined to extend through October 24, 2020, its coronavirus-related policy for prioritizing flights canceled or otherwise not operated as originally intended at designated International Air Transport Association (IATA) Level 2 airports in the United States, for purposes of establishing a carrier’s operational baseline in the next corresponding season. These IATA Level 2 airports include Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD), Newark Liberty International Airport (EWR), Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), and San Francisco International Airport (SFO). These extensions through October 24, 2020, are available on the SUMMARY: PO 00000 Frm 00115 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 same terms as the relief that the FAA already has announced through May 31, 2020.

SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Background In a notice that the FAA issued on March 11, 2020, and published in the Federal Register on March 16, 2020 (85 FR 15018), the FAA announced certain relief through May 31, 2020, in light of impacts on air travel demand related to the outbreak of novel 2019 coronavirus (also known as ‘‘SARS-CoV–2,’’ causing the disease COVID–19) (‘‘coronavirus’’). As announced in that notice, through May 31, 2020, the FAA will waive the minimum usage requirement as to any slot associated with a scheduled nonstop flight between JFK, LGA, or DCA, respectively, and other points that is canceled as a direct result of coronavirus-related impacts.1 In addition, that notice announced that the FAA will prioritize flights canceled due to coronavirus at designated IATA Level 2 airports in the United States— including ORD, EWR, LAX, and SFO— through May 31, 2020, for purposes of establishing a carrier’s operational baseline in the next corresponding season.2 In granting this relief, the FAA asserted its expectation that foreign airport slot coordinators would accommodate U.S. carriers with reciprocal relief. The FAA further stated that it would continue to monitor the situation and might augment the waiver as circumstances warrant. On March 22, 2020, the FAA issued a notice inviting stakeholders to show cause why the FAA should or should not extend the relief provided in the March 11, 2020, notice through the Summer 2020 scheduling season, which 1 Although DCA and LGA are not designated as IATA Level 3 slot-controlled airports given that these airports primarily serve domestic destinations, the FAA limits operations at these airports via rules at DCA and an Order at LGA that are equivalent to IATA Level 3. The FAA clarifies that the relief provided in the March 11 notice and in this decision extends to all allocated slots, including slots allocated by exemption. 2 The FAA notes that a minimum usage requirement does not apply at designated IATA Level 2 airports in the United States. Moreover, established procedures under the IATA Worldwide Slot Guidelines allow for the prioritization of such cancelations in subsequent corresponding seasons consistent with the FAA’s policy statement.
