Senate Approves $105 Billion Bill to Enhance Air Travel Safety and Customer Service

  • 28 days ago
The Senate passed a 105 billion dollar bill to improve air travel safety and customer service before the law governing the FAA expired. The bipartisan bill aims to increase air traffic controllers, improve safety standards, and make it easier for customers to get refunds for delayed and canceled flights. The bill addresses FAA oversight, requires new safety technology to prevent collisions, mandates cockpit voice recorders, and improves accessibility. It also requires airlines to pay refunds for long delays, prohibits fees for families sitting together, and increases fines for consumer law violations. The House will consider the bill next week.
