Airlines Draw Blank In New Republican U.S. Relief Package

According to press reports, the U.S. Senate Republican coronavirus spending proposal set to be introduced today will not include any new government assistance for U.S. airlines or airports.

The measure, a pared-back version of a $1 trillion bill introduced in July by Republicans, comes amid a furious push by airlines and unions to get a six-month extension of a $25 billion airline payroll support program set to expire at the end of the month.

It also excludes $10 billion in assistance for airports that was part of the earlier bill.
