  • IATA eyes improved security focused on results
    Tony Tyler, who heads up the International Air Transport Association, told a crowd at the AVSEC World conference in New York Tuesday that aviation security has to focus on results -- not processes. The Checkpoint of the Future initiative, which continues in pilot phase, focuses on better deploying resources and incorporating data usage. "We are not advocating for profiling based on religion or ethnicity. And we are not proposing infringements on privacy. But we can use existing information more effectively," Tyler said.

  • No even playing field for airfares with Resolution 787
    A recent New York Times’ editorial says most of the biggest airlines will be using a new pricing system that would give different fares for passengers on the same route depending on "how regularly they fly, where they live and the kind of trip they are taking." The system is dubbed "Resolution 787." According to the Business Travel Coalition, the system would "negatively and significantly impact airline competition and would drive up airline prices for consumers" in addition to raising privacy concerns.

  • Registration fee hike could increase funding for Idaho airports
    Legislation proposing a hike in aircraft registration fees is currently in Idaho's House of Representatives. If passed, it could mean 61 remote airports and landing strips in the state could receive increased funding. "There's been a significant loss of revenue lately because of the ... decrease in backcountry flying, and whatnot, and the fuel tax on aviation fuel," said state Rep. Marc Gibbs. "And so, we're having trouble maintaining a lot of these airports that don't qualify for federal funds." Idaho State Journal (Pocatello) (2/27) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
