A New Rule To Be Presented To Airlines And Travel Sites

A new proposed rule for airlines and travel sites is expected to be announced. President Biden will be announcing a rule that would require airlines and travel sites to be more transparent about additional fees that customers could be charged. Any fees regarding baggage, flight changes or cancellations are included. Airlines would have to explain extra fees the first time an airfare is displayed. The intentions of the rule would be to stop airlines from hiding the true cost of a flight ticket. The meeting will be held today and is scheduled to be the third gathering of The White House Competition Council that was formed last fall and is in charge of promoting competition across the U.S economy and lowering costs for American families.
