JetBlue and A4A CEOs call for a National Airline Policy

09/24/2013 | BlueTales blog

JetBlue CEO Dave Barger and A4A CEO Nick Calio released a video regarding the need for a National Airline Policy, and asked passengers to join them in urging policy makers to help make it a reality. The two CEOs highlighted that approximately 20% of a typical domestic airline ticket goes to the federal government. That's more than the percentage of government taxes levied on items deemed harmful for your health, like alcohol and cigarettes. Coupled with inefficient regulations, an outdated air traffic system and high fuel costs, there's room for improvement. Having a National Airline Policy in place would yield important benefits allowing airlines to better serve travelers across the nation. Plus, it would make the U.S. airline industry stronger, more reliable and more competitive on a global scale, giving us the tools to better serve you, the traveling public.
