Minimum Standards are for all Operators (person or entity) that provide or seek to provide commercial aeronautical services at the Airport. The purpose of the Minimum Standards is to establish reasonable aviation industry threshold entry requirements for any person or entity wishing to provide commercial aeronautical services to the public; to prevent irresponsible, unsafe or inadequate services; to prevent unfair competition; and, to make the Airport as financially self-sustaining as possible. The adoption and enforcement of these Minimum Standards are intended to ensure that each Operator is reasonably fit, willing and able to perform the services it seeks to provide at the Airport and is able to do so without unjust discrimination.The Airport Commission agenda and related documents can be viewed at this link.
The meeting of the Airport Commission will be held at City Council Chambers located at 1685 Main Street, Santa Monica.
