Airports, airlines disagree over whether to raise fees
Airports and airlines disagreed at a House hearing about whether to raise fees on tickets to pay for airport construction projects. The fees, called passenger-facility charges, raise $2.8 billion each year to pay for projects such as runway improvements or gate expansions, but airport executives say it isn't enough. The fees are capped at $4.50 per leg or $18 per round trip and were last raised in 2000. The fees are added to a passenger's ticket, depending on the airports they use.
