Passengers to pay more for aviation security while airlines glide

|By:, SA News Editor

The new budget deal in Congress includes a repeal of the Aviation Security Infrastructure Fee charged to airliners as passengers will now pay a higher portion of funds allocated to aviation security. The measure had support from leaders from both parties.

Passengers will now pay $5.60 for each segment of a trip, up from a previous level of $2.50, while airlines continue to pay less.
