Mixed Signals on Foreign Ownership: An Assessment

In this article (Paragraph No. 25,341) three significant developments have taken place concerning restrictions on foreign ownership of U.S. airlines since October 2003, when the author wrote his prior article on the topic. This article first discusses Congress’ tightening of the U.S. carriers, noting the lack of legislative history behind the change. Next, the article provides a reasoned analysis of an important Department of Transportation (DOT) citizenship review proceeding in which an air cargo carrier was found to have been under the actual control of U.S. citizens. In adopting the law judge’s recommended decision, the DOT made two critical policy observations related tot eh decision’s effects on competition and on international aviation negotiations. This article concludes with an update on the collapse and impending revival of the U.S./EU foreign ownership rule.
