Essential Air Service: Frequently Asked Questions

Rachel Tang
Analyst in Transportation Policy

The 112th Congress continues to work on reauthorizing the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA). Essential Air Service (EAS) is one of the major issues being debated in the process. A pending House reauthorization bill (H.R. 658) and the reauthorization bill recently approved by the Senate (S. 223) include different provisions affecting the EAS program, and the issue is also addressed in H.R. 408, the Spending Reduction Act of 2011.

This report provides an overview of the EAS program and the legislative issues.
