FAA Proposes $6.4 Million Civil Penalty Against Deutsche Lufthansa Airlines

Alleges The Airline Conducted Nearly 900 Flights Not In Compliance With FARs

The FAA has proposed a $6,428,000 civil penalty against Deutsche Lufthansa AG of Frankfurt, Germany, for allegedly conducting almost 900 flights that were not in compliance with Federal Aviation Regulations.

The FAA alleges Lufthansa operated the flights into and out of San Diego International and Philadelphia International airports when it knew it lacked FAA authorization to do so. Foreign airlines can only conduct scheduled flights into and out of airports that are listed in their FAA-issued Operations Specifications, and the FAA alleges neither airport was in Lufthansa’s Operations Specifications.

Between March 22, 2018 and May 27, 2019, Lufthansa operated approximately 600 flights with Airbus 340 aircraft from Frankfurt International Airport to San Diego, and from San Diego to Frankfurt. Between Oct. 28, 2018 and April 10, 2019, Lufthansa operated approximately 292 flights with Airbus 330-300 and Boeing 747-400 aircraft from Frankfurt to Philadelphia, and from Philadelphia to Frankfurt.

Lufthansa has 30 days after receiving the FAA’s civil penalty letter to respond to the agency.
