Foreign Air Carriers; Unfair and Deceptive Advertising; Enforcement Policy
SUMMARY: The Department's Office of Aviation Enforcement and Proceedings issues this notice to clarify its enforcement policy with regard to the advertising of service to or from the U.S. by foreign carriers. The notice advises foreign carriers that advertising service for which they lack the requisite economic authority from the Department violates the authority provisions of 49 U.S.C. Sec. 41301 and is an unfair and deceptive practice under 49 U.S.C. Sec. 41712 that may warrant enforcement action, even if the carrier has an application for such authority pending before the Department.
