On July 9, 2003, the FAA published in the Federal Register a notice of lottery and allocation procedures for slots at Washington Reagan National Airport (DCA) (68 FR 41037). In this notice the FAA stated that Title 49 of the United States Code (U.S.C.) 41714(h)(5)(A) amends the regulatory definition of a limited incumbent carrier to a carrier that holds or operates fewer than 20 lots and includes slot exemptions in the term “slots.”
The FAA has further reviewed this matter and clarifies that the definitions set forth in 49 U.S.C. 41714(h) apply to sections 41714-41718 and 41734(h) only. Therefore, the regulatory definitions of a “new entrant” carrier and a “limited incumbent” carrier, as set forth respectively in 14 CFR 93.213(a)(1) and 93.213(a)(5) are applicable for purposes of the lottery at DCA.Start Signature
