US Travel Urges Support for New FAA Task Force Bill

FAA

U.S. Travel Association Executive Vice President of Public Affairs and Policy Tori Emerson Barnes issued the following statement ahead of today’s U.S. House of Representatives vote on the NOTAM Improvement Act of 2023 (H.R. 346), which would create a Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) task force to improve the Notice to Air Mission system:

“After the FAA communication system failure earlier this month, it left no question that significant upgrades are needed to modernize our air traffic system.

Americans deserve a travel experience that is seamless and secure from end to end, and our elected leaders must take immediate steps to course correct years of government inaction. We thank Rep. Stauber for introducing this important legislation to create a task force of experts and encourage the bill’s passage.

“U.S. Travel looks forward to continuing our work with Congress during the upcoming FAA reauthorization process to modernize the air travel system and create a better flying experience for all Americans.”

U.S. Travel Association is the national, non-profit organization representing all components of the travel industry.

Travelers in the United States are estimated to spend $1.1 trillion in 2022 (still 10% below 2019 levels).

U.S. Travel advocates for policies to accelerate an even recovery across the travel industry and restore economic and job growth for this essential contributor to our nation's success.
