Biden administration to propose new rules for airline fees requiring more transparency


President Joe Biden plans to announce new rules on Monday that would require airlines and online travel agencies to disclose fees for seat selection, checked baggage and other extras as well as fares, the latest effort of the administration to strengthen the protection of passengers after a difficult summer season. .

Airlines charge travelers a number of additional benefits, which previously accompanied the cost of a ticket, including advanced selection fees for many seats on board, even those without extra legroom.

“Airline passengers deserve to know the full and true cost of their flights before purchasing a ticket,” Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg said in a press release. “This proposed new rule would require airlines to be transparent with customers about the fees they charge, which will help travelers make informed decisions and save money.”

Carriers and online travel agencies have updated their websites in recent years to call basic economy tickets the most restrictive but cheapest airline fares. Airline executives have said they want passengers to avoid these tickets in favor of more flexible standard economy tickets.

Airlines for America, which represents most major US airlines, did not immediately comment on the proposed changes.

The Biden administration’s proposal comes less than two months after the Department of Transportation called for tougher standards for when airlines must reimburse travelers for delays.
