Airports are the future.

Around the world, strong airports lead to strong economies. But in the US, we have been unable to invest what is needed to improve our airports and your travel experience. By modernizing the Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) and maintaining the Airport Improvement Program (AIP) to fund these improvements, we can drive the innovation necessary for airports to strengthen security and increase competition to lower fares. But airlines want to stop this despite the benefit to its passengers – the same customers they charge fee after fee to make billions in profits.

Watch the video. Sign the petition. Tell Congress to put airports and passengers first. Demand an upgrade for your airport.

The big airlines want more of your money.

They say they want to protect you from modernizing the PFC. But the airlines would rather have you pay them an extra $4 to pad their bottom line than devote that money entirely to upgrading your airport. Now they are standing in the way of the airport improvements that matter to you most, making a real difference in your travel experience.

How an adjustment to the PFC works for you:

Modern Security Checkpoints
Increased Airline Competition
Lower Fares
Baggage Handling Upgrades
On-Time Flights
Shorter Lines

The comfort of air travel begins and ends at the airport. With the support of Congress, we can modernize the Passenger Facility Charge and protect the Airport Improvement Program to fund airport improvements that enhance security and increase competition to lower fares.

Don't buy what the airlines are telling you.

When you stack up the fees, it’s pretty clear they don’t have your back as they continue to gouge passengers with fee after fee. If you’re tired of contributing to the billions of dollars the airlines profit each year from these fees and want a fee that actually gives something back, sign the petition to support a modernization of the Passenger Facility Charge and upgrade your airport!
