Why you should want a National Airline Policy

Did you know that approximately 20 percent of a typical domestic airline ticket you pay goes to the federal government? That’s more than the percentage of government taxes levied on items deemed harmful for your health, like alcohol and cigarettes. Coupled with inefficient regulations, an outdated air traffic system and high fuel costs, let’s just say there’s room for improvement.

Having a National Airline Policy in place would yield important benefits allowing airlines to better serve travelers across the nation. Plus, it would make the U.S. airline industry stronger, more reliable and more competitive on a global scale, giving us the tools to better serve you, the traveling public.
