Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis for NPRM on Transparency of Airline Ancillary Fees and other Consumer Protection Issues

About this Document

This document presents the Initial Regulatory Flexibility Analysis to accompany the US Department of Transportation’s (the Department) Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) to enhance airline passenger protections in relation to: the display of airline-imposed ancillary service fees; customer service plans for ticket agents; code-share disclosure; and expanding the pool of carriers that report information to the Department, and the information they report. As directed by the Regulatory Flexibility Act of 1980, as amended by the Small Business Regulatory Enforcement Fairness Act of 1996 (SBREFA), as well as Executive Order 13272, the Department is required to consider the potential impact of its regulations on small entities, including small businesses, small nonprofit organizations and small governmental jurisdictions.
