Capital Access Alliance: Fight Continues to Give Washington, D.C. Air Travelers More Choices & Lower Prices

Proposal To Improve Affordable Access To Washington, D.C. Moves To The U.S. Senate

Washington, D.C. – Capital Access Alliance (CAA), a nationwide coalition of business and transportation leaders seeking to make air travel to and from Washington, D.C. more accessible and affordable, released the following statement regarding the U.S. House vote on bipartisan legislation to authorize seven flights at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport (DCA):

“Although it’s disappointing to fall short with tonight’s vote, this fight is far from over.   Changing the status quo is never easy, and we’ve seen how aggressively opponents of reform react to threats of more competition and lower prices for consumers.  Fortunately, it’s clear there is strong bipartisan support in both the House and the Senate for a consensus solution that will boost competition, give consumers more choices and make air travel to Washington, D.C. more affordable and accessible,” said CAA spokesperson Brian Walsh.  “As this debate moves to the Senate, we will continue to elevate the voices of Americans who are suffering from high ticket prices and a lack of access to their nation’s capital.”
