Airline Ticket Tax Hike Harms U.S. Airline Industry and Its Employees
December 11, 2013 - The Air Line Pilots Association, Int’l (ALPA) released the following statement in adamant opposition to the increased airline ticket tax provision contained in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013.

“The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013’s airline ticket tax hike hits U.S. airlines and their employees with an enormous economic blow by adding billions in new taxes on air passengers. The increased tax is on top of the billions in taxes and fees that the U.S. government already unfairly imposes on U.S. airlines and their passengers, suppressing demand and slowing growth.”
