Any change that affects the scope of an operator's Air Operator Certificate (AOC) or the Operations Specifications (Ops Spec) must receive prior approval from the Directorate of Civil Aviation (Direction de l'Aviation Civile – DAC).
The most common changes include, but are not limited to, the following:
Commercial air operators that hold a commercial air transport certificate (AOC) issued by the DAC must apply for approval for any change that affects the scope of the Air Operator Certificate (AOC) or the Operations Specifications (Ops Spec).
To apply to amend an AOC, applicants must hold a commercial air transport certificate (AOC) issued by the DAC.
The application must be submitted to the DAC at least 30 days before the desired date of implementation.
The cost of an amendment is determined in accordance with the terms of the Grand Ducal regulation of 19 November 2019.
The fee to change the scope of an AOC or the operations specifications is determined based on time spent.
To add an aircraft type that is already being operated to the AOC, the fee is EUR 2,000. If the aircraft type is not yet being operated, the fee is EUR 5,000.
For further information, applicants should contact the DAC.
Operators must send the duly completed, dated and signed application form by post or email (to firstname.lastname@example.org) with the requested supporting documents.
The supporting documents required depend on the type of change to the AOC.
To find out which documents they must submit, applicants should contact the DAC by email at email@example.com.
Operators may not implement the change until they receive official approval from the DAC.
For any changes that do not require prior approval, operators must notify the DAC as soon as possible.
