<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black">As you know, the Exchange has been hard at work to raise awareness of the plight of seafarers and effect policy change to facilitate crew changes at U.S. ports, and particularly those within the Delaware River.  One of the roadblocks — that the Philadelphia International Airport has been closed to international traffic — has been resolved effective today.  See the brief article issued last week by the airport.

<span-family:"Arial",sans-serif;color:black">Recognizing that it may be some time before airline schedules approach anything close to normal, CBP has informed the Exchange that it will continue to allow deviations from the requirement to depart direct-to-foreign from PHL for the foreseeable future.  While much work remains before we put this issue behind us, this is definitely a step in the right direction.
