Airlines call to end corporate jet subsidies

2nd Jul 2007

The Air Transport Association has responded with disappointment to a bill released by the House Committee on
Transportation and Infrastructure FAA Reauthorization.“We view the House bill with a real sense of disappointment. It does
nothing to resolve record delays, growing congestion and the crisis that
faces the nation’s travelers. It does little to promote a
next-generation air traffic control system, raises barriers to
efficiencies, imposes a multi-billion dollar new tax on airline
passengers, and does not stop requiring passengers from subsidizing
elite corporate-jet fliers,” said ATA President and CEO James C. May.
“Nevertheless, we will continue to work with all parties on crafting a
final result that rejects the current unfair passenger subsidy of
corporate jets and takes the bold steps necessary to modernize our
antiquated air traffic control system.”
