Florida State Senator Asking Airlines to Waive Cancellation Fees to Preserve Florida Tourism

JUNE 17, 2010 — Sen. Charlie Justice (D- St. Petersburg) wrote a letter to the Air Transportation Association asking the airlines to waive their cancellation fees because people are being scared away from booking trips to Florida and other states on the Gulf Coast. They are worried that if the area they are visiting is affected by the oil spill, they will have to pay a cancellation, so they aren’t booking at all.
