Air Transport Association Of America (ATA)
: 03 June, 2010  (Company News)
Notice of Proposed Rulemaking from the US Department of Transport to be evaluated at ATA against passenger convenience criteria
The Air Transport Association of America (ATA) has issued the following statement regarding the passenger-protection notice of proposed rulemaking (NPRM) issued by the Department of Transportation (DOT):

“The ATA member airlines’ shared goal is to provide a safe, efficient, reliable and economically viable air transportation system consistent with the expectations of their customers, employees and shareholders. Today’s DOT notice of proposed rulemaking will be evaluated against that standard, with a focus on minimizing potential passenger inconvenience,” said ATA President and CEO James May.

Annually, commercial aviation helps drive more than $1 trillion in US economic activity and nearly 11 million US jobs. On a daily basis, US airlines operate nearly 25,000 flights in 80 countries, using more than 6,000 aircraft to carry an average of two million passengers and 50,000 tons of cargo.
