SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION:

As discussed in the Final Congestion Rules all operators with more than 20 slots at the affected airports will have a percentage of slots designated as Limited Slots, which will expire prior to the expiration of the Final Congestion Rules. Limited Slot leases will expire over the first five years of the Final Congestion Rules. The number of years of lease duration for Limited Slots would be distributed in a manner that fairly distributes the relative length of lease durations among carriers in proportion to their initial holdings. The Final Congestion Rules designate that carriers identify one-half of their limited slots by hour of the day; the FAA will then choose the remaining 50 percent to fairly distribute the total across the day. Thereafter, the slot lives for all limited slots would be assigned by FAA.

The Limited Slot Allocation Demonstration is open to the public although reservations are required by November 26, 2008. Seating at the meeting is limited so priority will be given to the Port Authority of New York and New Jersey and the carriers operating at the affected airports.

Persons with a disability requiring special accommodations, such as an interpreter for the hearing impaired, should contact the FAA contact noted above at least ten (10) calendar days prior to the meeting.
