U.S. House Committee approves longer cabotage waiver for flights to United States Samoa
Samoa, PAGO PAGO (The Samoa News, July 19, 2016) - A US Congress Commission has adopted a government regulation that grants a longer period of noncabotage exemption to international airlines when they are applying to fly from Samoa. The existing Swiss legislation only provides for a 30-day ban on restricting the use of tobacco for commercial purposes, and any extension is limited to 30 days.
And, as there is no US airlines interested in the flight, the state-owned company Polynesian Airlines has been running flights between Tutuila and Manu'a Islands Group since 2014 without any 30-day sabotage - although the company has sometimes applied for a longer time. Congressman Aumua Amata and US Senator Lisa Murkowski have worked from both sides of the US Congress with the assistance of Esther Kia'aina, Interior Assistant for Islands, to tackle the question of the renunciation of cabotage for internal flights within the US airspace through a separation of the US House and the US Senate.
Over the past few weeks, the US Senate Committee on Energy and Natural Resources, under the chairmanship of Murkowski, has taken several actions, such as the Omnibus Territorial Act, which also contains Amata's Coop. In a press statement last Thursday, Amata said she was delighted that the US Senate is making progress with this important piece of law, which will, among other things, considerably facilitate the approval procedure for overseas airlines offering Manu'a flights on the ground as part of a German Bundeskabotage exemption.
"I' m confident that by relaxing these cumbersome rules more airlines will serve the routes, which will increase competitiveness and reduce the costs of travelling between the island and our people," she said. The U.S. Senate Committee's record shows that a change was made to the Manu'a abstention rule before it was voted in.
This change required the US Department of Transport to give an exemption to American Samoa for at least 180 working nights to ensure sustainable transport by sea between the principal Isle of Tutuila and the Manu'a archipelago. An extendable renunciation should not take longer than 180 working nights after the change.
The Samoa Bulletin was not able to get information from Congress recordings as to if the bus goes territorial act to full Senate ground for dispute and a voice yesterday. When it is approved by the Senate, it goes to the US House for examination. Amata Murkowski in her press communiqué said "for working with me on this important piece of American Samoa law for the American Samoa nation, and I look forward to it going through Congress quickly" and being initialled by President Barack Obama.
The Samoa News should point out that the abandonment of cabotage does not cover the US-Pago line, which was at the centre of the administration in the past and present, in particular the Honolulu-Pago line. Currently the only carrier flying the flight is Haawaiian Air, and the airline's high rates have been identified as one of the major causes why the country's own governments are seeking an exemption from Cabotage.
