New airfare increases taking effect this month
Later this month air travel will get even more expensive so if you have any travel plans for the coming months, try to book your ticket before July 21st. Beginning on July 21, the federal Sept 11 security fee will more than double on many new tickets going from $5 to $11.20 on round trip tickets. Also, trips with multiple stops that last longer than four hours could see the TSA fee multiply with each additional leg. In addition, airports are looking to almost double the facility fee going from $4.50 to up to $8.00 each time you board a plane. Finally the Customs and Border Protection is pushing to increase its immigration fee on international tickets from $7.00 to $9.00.
