In response to President Biden’s “Executive Order on Promoting Competition in the American Economy,” issued July 9, 2021, NACA President and CEO George Novak issued the following statement:
NACA applauds the Administration for issuing today’s Executive Order promoting the interests of American workers, businesses and consumers. NACA air carriers strongly support the rights of passengers to choose their airlines, passenger services and airports at fair prices in a fully open and competitive atmosphere.
We particularly welcome the review of policies that have prevented millions of working families in the largest and most concentrated markets from accessing rock-bottom fares and expanded service options to smaller and rural airports and popular leisure destinations. NACA’s ultra-low-cost carrier members – Allegiant Air, Frontier Airlines, Spirit Airlines and Sun Country Airlines – welcome the opportunity to compete for Americans’ business in an open and transparent market.
