Don't buy what the big airlines are telling you.

Watch the video. Sign the petition. Tell Congressman Graves to put airports and passengers first.

The airlines say they want to protect you from a $4 increase in the fee that goes back to the airport you fly from – but modernizing the Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) helps fund improvements to enhance security and increase competition to lower airfares. The airlines would rather put that $4 in their pockets, adding to the billions of dollars in profit they generate from gouging passengers with fees.

Tell Congressman Graves to upgrade your airport!

Upgrade My Airport - Contact Congressman Garret Graves

The comfort of air travel begins and ends at the airport. With the support of Congressman Garret Graves (R-LA), we can modernize the Passenger Facility Charge and protect the Airport Improvement Program to fund improvements for the airports we depend on to keep us secure when we travel. Improvements can also increase competition, which drives down the cost of airfare – exactly what the airlines do not want.

Enough is enough! It's time to get Washington out of the airport business. Tell Mr. Graves to put passengers first and let airports become more financially self-sufficient.

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!
