Background

On December 27, 2006, the FAA adopted operational limitations on New York LaGuardia Airport (LaGuardia) flights through an order (the Order) that became effective on January 1, 2007. 71 FR 77854. On August 7, 2007, the FAA subsequently proposed several amendments to the Order to improve the administration of the congestion management program at LaGuardia. Comments to that document are to be received on or before September 6, 2007.

By written request, dated August 7, 2007, the Air Transport Association of America, Inc. (ATA) and the Regional Airline Association (RAA) asked the FAA to extend the comment period for an additional 30 days. The FAA does not believe that an extension of time is necessary. The ATA and RAA recognized that a substantial number of the proposed amendments to the Order are technical corrections that they themselves identified to the FAA. While it may be difficult to coordinate comments from the petitioners' association during this “peak vacation” period and the Labor Day holiday, the FAA believes there is a stronger interest in the timely issuance of these amendments.
