FAA Waives Slot Usage Requirements for Winter Storm Cancellations

As reported by USA Today, the Federal Aviation Administration has decided to grant U.S. carriers' request that the slot usage requirements normally in force at high density east coast airports such as Reagan National in Washington D.C., Kennedy International and LaGuardia in New York, and Liberty International in Newark be waived for cancellations related to the heavy storms of the past few months. Under normal conditions, airlines are at risk of losing their slot rights if they fail to use them at least 80 percent of the time. A pdf of the order, which includes the specific dates covered by the waiver and will be published in next week's Federal Register, is available via the Federal Register here.
