To find out if your airline has air carrier air carrier fees, call 800-543-8333 or visit the air carrier agent registration page.
If your airline doesn’t charge air carrier and other registration fees to agents, it may not be in compliance with the Air Carrier Registration Act of 2018.
If your airline does not comply with the Act, you should contact the FAA and the Office of Air Transportation Standards to determine whether the carrier is in compliance.
If the carrier isn’t in compliance, you could lose your air carrier license and lose your ability to fly under a specific air carrier.
The FAA may also be able to cancel your air company license.
If a carrier doesn’t have air carrier carrier registration, the FAA will determine whether your airline is in violation of the Air Transportation Safety Administration’s air carrier regulations.
The Air Carrier Safety Act requires that all air carriers comply with regulations for aircraft that carry passengers, property, or hazardous materials.
If any air carrier or air carrier owner is in noncompliance with the regulations, the air transportation safety agency may order the carrier to cease operations, suspend operations, or otherwise discipline the carrier for the violation.
If there is a conflict between the Air carrier Safety Act and the Air Traffic Control Act, the Air Transport Safety Administration will determine the appropriate course of action.
