FAA congestion pricing plan draws opposition
An FAA proposal to cut airline delays by imposing peak-period pricing to reduce congestion at busy airports is a "bad idea," according to the National Business Aviation Association. The key element of the FAA's proposal is to allow a two-part landing fee based on operations and aircraft weight. The NBAA believes that letting airports impose the two-part fee would make it easier to limit smaller aircraft traffic, including business aviation operations, and create incentives for airlines to use larger aircraft. The National Air Transportation Association, meanwhile, said the FAA should focus on "runway expansions and airport improvements to aid traffic flow at the most congested airports."
