DOT/OST RIN: 2105-AE47 Publication ID: Spring 2021 
Title: Tarmac Delay Rule 

This rulemaking would amend carrier obligations with respect to excessive tarmac delays in DOT's regulations for certain situations to conform with changes made in the FAA Extension, Safety, and Security Act of 2016. This rulemaking would also make changes to carrier tarmac delay reporting and record retention requirements, as well as a change to the requirement that carriers notify passengers onboard an aircraft every 30 minutes about the status of the delay. After further consideration, the Department has determined that this is a nonsignificant rulemaking, and will not appear in future rulemaking reports on significant rules.
