Flyers Rights Pres.: Trump Plan to Privatize Air Traffic Control Could Increase Fees for Passengers
On Monday, President Donald Trump kicked off "infrastructure week" at the White House by announcing plans to privatize air traffic control. This comes as the Congressional Budget Office analysis says privatizing air traffic control would increase the cost of air travel. "It is very unlikely that it is going to improve air service for the average consumer," says Paul Hudson, president of Flyers Rights, the largest nonprofit airline passenger rights organization in the United States.
