As a passenger carrier, will I need Operating Authority?

Yes - if you are for-hire and engaging in interstate commerce (crossing state lines, going to the airport or port of entry).

 A for-hire passenger carrier is a company that provides transportation of passengers for compensation. You can be a for-hire passenger carrier regardless of whether:

  • You are compensated directly or indirectly for the transportation service provided, or
  • The compensation is paid or not paid by the passengers
