Government Says “No More than 3 Hours”

Press Release   •   Dec 21, 2009 20:53 EST

Congress today passed legislature that will kick into effect within the next 120 days mandating that airlines do not let any passenger jetliners sit in the tarmac for more than 3 hours without penalties and/or fines for the carriers. This piece of legislations comes amidst reports that some passengers earlier this year were left overnight inside a plane with no food, limited water and unhealthy lavatories.

The new legislation calls for airlines “to provide food and water for passenger within 2 hours of a plane being delayed in a tarmac, and maintain reasonable lavatories”.

Universal Action Travel representatives which book hundreds of vacations a year said “This piece of legislation should put those nervous to travel a bit more at ease. Hopefully the not so friendly skies might become a bit friendlier for the traveler.
