Trade organization Airlines for America (A4A) has announced it has joined seven other aviation-related groups in a letter to the FAA urging the agency to integrate the key principles of efficiency and safety into its final rule on commercial space licensing, the organization said.

Annually, commercial aviation helps drive $1.5 trillion in U.S. economic activity and more than 10 million US jobs. US airlines fly 2.4 million passengers and more than 58,000 tons of cargo each day. Airlines for America (A4A) advocates on behalf of the American airline industry as a model of safety, customer service and environmental responsibility and as the indispensable network that drives our nation´s economy and global competitiveness.

A4A works collaboratively with the airlines, labor, Congress, the Administration and other groups to improve aviation for the traveling and shipping public.
