P.L. 112-95: Filing tarmac delay contingency plans with DOT February 24, 2012 DOT implementing notice

The FAA Modernization and Reform Act of 2012 requires covered U.S. carriers
and U.S. airports to submit to the Secretary of Transportation for review and approval tarmac
delay contingency plans on or before May 14, 2012. The U.S. Department of Transportation’s
Office of Aviation Enforcement and Proceedings (Enforcement Office) will be establishing an
electronic submission system to enable covered airlines and airports to submit the required plans
through the World Wide Web. The Enforcement Office plans to issue another notice within 45
days that will provide information on how covered carriers and airports can submit these
required plans. Submissions of the plans should not be made prior to that date to ensure proper
review and recording.
