Delta CEO: Fliers will pay for higher security fee

 

JOSHUA FREED, AP Airlines Writer


MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The CEO of Delta Air Lines says a bigger security fee being considered in Congress will be paid by travelers, not by the airlines themselves.

CEO Richard Anderson calls the fee a tax, and says it means fares are going up. He says the increase will not be absorbed by Delta.

Airlines have long complained that sales taxes, security fees, and airport taxes drive up the cost of their tickets unfairly.
