ATA on DOT's Airline Forum

The Air Transport Association has issued a statement on today's airline forum hosted by the Department of Transportation.  See Press Release, ATA, ATA Comments on DOT Stakeholder Forum . . . (Nov. 12, 2009) (available here).  From the release:

Airline executives participating in the forum called for:

  • No new taxes and fees, which would burden an already overtaxed industry and travelers/shippers
  • Fully funded and accelerated modernization of the nation’s air traffic control
    (ATC) system
  • Enhanced oversight of energy markets to excessive speculation and the resulting volatility of oil prices
  • Elimination of arcane restrictions on airlines’ ability to operate efficiently in the global marketplace
  • A global sectoral approach to climate change for aviation developed through the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO)
