In a letter sent last month to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), the National Air Transportation Association and several other trade groups requested a six-month extension of the compliance deadline of the rules for amending fuel spill-prevention and control plans and an additional six months for final implementation of those plans. Current deadlines are February 17 and August 18 next year, respectively.
