United States : Blackbird Air seeks license from US DOT.

With a plan to operate business charters to the United States, Blackbird Air is seeking from the US Department of Transportation (DOT) a foreign air carrier license.

The airline has filed an application with the DoT, saying the Danish business charter expert "seeks authority from the Department in order to offer premium executive charter service to the US".

Blackbird Air plans to fly on transatlantic routes between the European Common Aviation Area, including the EU and some other countries, and the US within the legal framework of the EU-US Open-Skies Agreement.

The carrier has sought a "small aircraft" license which has slightly less strict regulatory requirements.

Blackbird Air currently runs a fleet of two aircraft, one Falcon 7X and one Falcon 2000S. It has only operated under its own air operator's certificate since October 1, 2017. Earlier, the airline was a part of the Blackbird Air Charter group.
