§377.1   Definitions.

As used in this part:

Authorization means any agency certificate, approval, statutory exemption or other form of permission granted pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 40102, 41102, 41302, 41309, and 41708. Where any operating authorization creates more than one separate route, each of these shall be deemed a separate authorization for the purposes of this part.

Renewal application means any application filed in conformity with the requirements of this part which requests either a renewal or a new license and is intended to invoke the provisions of the last sentence of 5 U.S.C. 558(c).

Route means an authorization which permits an air carrier to render unlimited regularly scheduled service between a specifically designated pair of terminal points and intermediate points, if any.

§377.2   Applicability of part.

(a) This part implements the last sentence of 5 U.S.C. 558(c) with regard to temporary authorizations granted by the Department.

Note: The last sentence of 5 U.S.C. 558(c) provides: “When the licensee has made timely and sufficient application for a renewal or a new license in accordance with agency rules, a license with reference to an activity of a continuing nature does not expire until the application has been finally determined by the agency.”

(b) Nothing in this part prevents the Department from terminating at any time, in accordance with law, any authorization or any extension of an authorization.

(c) Nothing in this part constitutes a determination that any given authorization is a “license with reference to an activity of a continuing nature” within the meaning of 5 U.S.C. 558(c).

§377.3   Authorizations not covered by 5 U.S.C. 558(c).

The Department hereby determines that the following authorizations are not licenses “with reference to an activity of a continuing nature” within the meaning of 5 U.S.C. 558(c):

(a) Authorizations granted for a specified period of 180 days or less; and

(b) Authorizations, other than those granted under 49 U.S.C. 41102, that by their terms are subject to termination at an uncertain date upon the happening of an event, including fulfillment of a condition subsequent or occurrence of a contingency.

§377.4   Certain authorizations with alternative termination dates.

Unless granted under 49 U.S.C. 41102, an authorization that by its terms is subject to termination alternatively, either at an uncertain date upon the happening of an event or upon the arrival of a specified date:

(a) Will not be considered a “license with reference to an activity of a continuing nature” within the meaning of 5 U.S.C. 558(c), if the event occurs before the specified date; and

(b) Ordinarily (subject to interpretation under §377.5) will be considered such a license, if the event does not occur before the specified date and that date is more than 180 days after the effective date of the authorization.

[SPR-184, 47 FR 7212, Feb. 18, 1982, as amended by Doc. No. DOT-OST-2014-0140, 84 FR 15940, Apr. 16, 2019]

§377.5   Procedure to obtain Department interpretation.

(a) The Department will determine upon written request by the holder of a temporary authorization or by any competitively affected air carrier or foreign air carrier, or upon its own initiative, whether the temporary authorization is a “license with reference to an activity of a continuing nature” within the meaning of 5 U.S.C. 558(c).

(b) A written request for such a Department determination shall be filed at least 60 days before the deadline set forth in §377.10 for a timely renewal application.

(c) The filing of such a written request shall not affect the timeliness requirements for renewal applications that are set forth in §377.10 or any other applicable Department rule or order.
