Part 139 Certification

Airports - Southern Region

14 CFR Part 139 prescribes rules governing the certification and operation of airports in any State of the United States, the District of Columbia, or any territory or possession of the United States serving any scheduled passenger-carrying operations of an air carrier operating aircraft designed for more than 9 passenger seats and unscheduled operations of an air carrier operating aircraft designed for at least 31 passenger seats.

This part also applies to those portions of a joint-use or shared-use airport that are within the authority of a person serving passenger-carrying operations. This part does not apply to airports serving scheduled air carrier operations only by reason of being designated as an alternate airport.

Notice to airport operators:

In the FAA Southern Region, we are still in the process of developing a plan for on-site inspection airports that have not yet received an annual inspection for fiscal year 2020. We want to ensure that our oversight of your airport and programs is accomplished in a safe and responsible manner.

We will keep you informed once a decision has been made regarding if and when our inspection staff will be visiting your facility.

For now, airport certification safety inspections are on hold until further notice.
