More Paperwork for Regionals If DOT Gets Its Way

 - October 9, 2007, 12:02 PM

Smaller regional airlines will be required to provide substantially more air traffic activity statistics to the DOT, if a notice of proposed rulemaking is adopted. Existing rules exempt carriers operating only airplanes of fewer than 60 seats from the current detailed reporting requirements. The DOT said additional statistics are required because of the “increasing diversity in the makeup of code-share agreements.” Comments are due by November 26.
