U.S. and E.U. Air Travel Pact = Cheaper Tickets?

An agreement between the U.S. and E.U. may soon allow airlines more flexibility in their trans-Atlantic flight operations. If approved by Congress and E.U. transport ministers later this year, the pact would allow European carriers to fly into U.S. airports from airports outside their own countries. As it now stands, for example, a British airline can only fly into a U.S. airport from a British airport. The change will allow much more competition among airlines, which could lead to increased options for travelers and – we hope – lower ticket fares. If approved, the pact would take effect in October 2007.
