Haiti Emergency exemption under 49 U.S.C. § 40109 from the provisions of 49 U.S.C. § 41101

By this order, we are extending for an additional 30 days the emergency exemption authority from the provisions of 49 U.S.C. § 41101 granted to carriers with authority under 14 CFR Part 125 in connection with Haiti relief efforts. That exemption, first granted by Order 2010-1-10, issued January 14, 2010, will expire on February 14, 2010. This 30-day extension of that emergency exemption will allow those carriers to continue to provide assistance in the carriage of freight and people affected by the January 12, 2010, Haiti earthquake, and the transport into the affected areas of relief personnel and supplies.
