Tarmac Delay Plan
Occasionally, aircraft may be diverted to Richmond (RIC) or delayed for departure for extended periods for reasons that could include high traffic volumes or inclement weather. To assist customers, RIC has developed a Tarmac Delay Plan as required by the U.S. Department of Transportation (USDOT), outlining the airport’s role during periods of excessive delays.
The purpose of this plan is to establish a partnership between the Capital Region Airport Commission, passenger airlines at RIC, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), concession operators, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), U.S. Customs (USCBP), and ground support service providers to assist passenger airlines in the event a flight becomes delayed for any reason and passengers are on board the aircraft for long periods of time.
Plan details from the 2021 update can be viewed here.
