COGC and ATR Support Transparent Airfares Act

Today, COGC and ATR sent the following letter to the House of Representatives, supporting Chairman Bill Shuster(R-Pa.) and Congressman Tom Grave's (R-Ga.) bill, the Transparent Airfares Act. In part, the letter reads: 

We write to encourage your colleagues to co-sponsor and otherwise support your bill, H.R. 4156, the Transparent Airfares Act. Your bill is a vital step toward airfare transparency and the end of the Department of Transportation's descriminatory regulations that target airlines and travelers.

The Transparent Airfares Act will allow airlines to inform flyers of the true cost of air travel by breaking out taxes and fees from the base fare. This repeals the current requirement that airlines advertise artificially high prices providing a more transparent and competitive market place travelers.

Thus, we encourage lawmakers to support H.R. 4156 and look forward to working with you to protect American travelers and taxpayers.
