UNITED TENTATIVELY AWARDED FORMER PAN AM LATIN ROUTES

 UNITED TENTATIVELY AWARDED FORMER PAN AM LATIN ROUTES
 WASHINGTON, May 15 /PRNewswire/ -- The Department of


Transportation today tentatively approved United Air Lines' acquisition of Latin American routes formerly operated by Pan American World Airways.
 In a show-cause order, the department cited its policy to approve transfer agreements unless international aviation policy or other public interest considerations dictate otherwise. United has shown it will effectively use all the frequencies it is acquiring from Pan Am, the department said in its order. American Airlines' petition to obtain a number of Pan Am's frequencies to Brazil, Argentina and Grand Cayman was tentatively denied.
 The department regretted that Pan Am's bankruptcy had eliminated many jobs, but was pleased that United will employ more than 1,000 former Pan Am workers. The department tentatively declined to require that United hire more Pan Am employees, since that would be unfair to United's employees and contrary to the underlying principles of deregulation.
 The routes involved in today's decision have been served on a temporary basis by several carriers, including United, since Pan Am ceased operations last December.
 Comments on the show-cause order are due in 10 days, with answers to comments due five days later.
