requirements, but much more! In addi!on to that, I find it amazing that interna!onal airlines are able to navigate all of the governing bodies thatthey must comply with. The list is long!Paul BreonAug 29, 2020#Reply"Aside from mee!ng customer’s needs in a way that differen!ates them from their compe!!on, airlines must also meet the needs of severalgovernment agencies. All of these agencies have specific purposes and swim-lanes in terms of regula!on. At the macro level, the Department ofTransporta!on is the government en!ty that oversees the safety, construc!on, policy development, and economic considera!ons for transporta!on ingeneral (Findlaw, n.d.). This is essen!ally the en!ty that ensures that all transporta!on industries are in rela!ve harmony with regards to what is goodfor the country as a whole.The Transporta!on Safety Administra!on was formed a$er the 9/11 a%acks and specifically manages security policies to minimize threats not only atairports, but railways, ports of entry etc.. Airlines must comply with TSA’s requirements both in-airport, from a passenger screening and securityperspec!ve, as well as from a cargo security standpoint.The Na!onal Transporta!on Safety Board is a federal agency that airlines must comply with in the event of an accident, as the en!ty’s primary duty isto inves!gate them. Because of the fact that airplane crashes usually result in large scale loss of life and property damage, airlines must work hand inhand complying with the NTSB in order to enable root cause of a crash.Finally, the Federal Avia!on Administra!on is the only en!ty of these four that is specific only to avia!on. The FAA has the most direct impact andinterac!on with airlines as it is responsible for everything from air traﬃc management (Sud et al., 2009), to pilot licensing and much more. Aside fromregula!ng all thing avia!on, airlines regularly interact and must comply with things like airworthiness direc!ves issued by the FAA, which can doanything from no!fy airlines of an improved prac!ce to forcing immediate grounding of a fleet.References:Findlaw.
