Agency Information Collection Activities: Requests for Comments; Clearance of an Emergency Approval of Information Collection: Runway to Recovery Recommendations To Help Airports and Airlines Mitigate the Risks of COVID-19 Transmission
In accordance with the Paperwork Reduction Act (PRA) of 1995, FAA invites public comments about our intention to request the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) emergency approval for a new information collection. The collection involves determining the extent to which U.S. airlines and certificated U.S. airports have been able to implement practices recommended to reduce and mitigate the risks of COVID-19 transmission during air travel. FAA is collecting this information on behalf of multiple agencies that will use the information collected to gauge implementation, identify the impact of recommended practices on aviation safety and operations, understand potential barriers to implementation, and identify additional mitigation practices. If granted, the emergency approval is only valid for 180 days. FAA plans to follow this emergency request with a submission for a 3-year approval through OMB's normal PRA clearance process.
