"We commend Congress on the FAA agreement," said Michael W. McCormick, GBTA Executive Director and COO. "Long advocated by GBTA, the multi-year reauthorization delivers a $281 billion net benefit for the economy and represents a better way of doing business. We also commend the committee for not including tax increases on top of today's significant traveler tax burden, another GBTA priority."
McCormick concluded: "Business travel depends on aviation. NextGen is critical for the future of our nation's economy. NextGen means fewer flight delays, fewer ground delays and fewer missed business opportunities due to flight cancellations – all essential for busy business travelers."
