Download as PDF 54784 Federal Register / Vol. 86, No. 189 / Monday, October 4, 2021 / Notices are expected to allow some higher levels of operations in certain periods (not to exceed the hourly limits) and some recovery from lower demand in adjacent periods. Consistent with general established practice at EWR, the FAA will accept flights above the limits if the flights were operated as approved, or treated as operated, by the same carrier on a regular basis in the previous corresponding season (i.e., Summer 2021). Notwithstanding the targeted limits at EWR previously described, OST and the FAA have announced the intent to reintroduce and reassign 16 peak afternoon and evening runway timings, which were historically approved for operation by Southwest Airlines, Inc. at EWR prior to the carrier’s exit from the airport in November 2019. As proposed, these 16 timings would be reassigned for the benefit of a single low-cost carrier or ultra-low-cost carrier at EWR.8 This proposed EWR reassignment process responds to the decision of the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit in Spirit Airlines v. DOT, et al., and furthers the whole of government approach to competition embodied in the President’s Executive Order on Promoting Competition in the American Economy (E.O. 14036). This proposed reassignment of schedule timings at EWR is an independent process outside of the FAA’s routine schedule review process. While the FAA would accommodate the reassignment of the 16 peak afternoon and evening operations as proposed in the September 20, 2021 notice, the FAA would continue to seek voluntary cooperation from all carriers to adjust schedules at EWR in an effort to manage the operation within the desired scheduling limits. Once the reassignment proceeding is complete, the FAA would seek to work in coordination with the awarded carrier to adjust schedules within the peak afternoon and evening period, including minor changes between adjacent half hours, in the interest of optimizing efficiency and accommodating the carrier’s schedule plans, consistent with the usual Level 2 process. Issued in Washington, DC, on September 30, 2021. Virginia T. Boyle, Vice President, System Operations Services.
