ACPA Signs on To Letter Supporting PFC Reform

ACPA has signed on to a letter to Rep. Thomas Massie (R-KY-04) and Earl Blumenauer (D-OR-03) expressing “strong support” of H.R. 3791, the Investing in America: Rebuilding America’s Airport Infrastructure Act. Rep. Massie, a member of the of the House T&I Committee, and Rep. Blumenauer, a member of the House Ways & Means Committee, introduced the bill in mid-July.

The bill would eliminate the federally imposed cap on the Passenger Facility Charge (PFC) and provide airports with the ability to locally determine their own PFC rates based on their unique infrastructure needs.

Sent on behalf of the Beyond the Runway Coalition,* the letter states, “Congress last adjusted the PFC cap to $4.50 in 2000, but with inflation and rising construction costs , the purchasing power of the PFC has significantly eroded to barely $2.25. As a result, many airports have reached their debt capacity and either cannot finance new projects or have had to stretch their projects over a longer time frame, increasing the costs and delaying the benefits for passengers.”

The letter adds that eliminating the anti-competitive federal cap on PFCs would allow airports across the country to become more financially self-sufficient. “It is important to note that PFCs are not taxes, but rather local user fees determined locally and used locally to improve the passenger experience and spur airline competition,” the letter continues.
