The Air Transport Association of America (ATA) has said it will comply with new rules to deplane passengers set out by the Department of Transportation (DOT).

The new tarmac delay rule requires airlines to deplane passengers after three hours of an extended delay or face fines.

In a statement the ATA said “we will comply with the new rule even though we believe it will lead to unintended consequences – more cancelled flights and greater passenger inconvenience.”

ATA airline members and their affiliates transport more than 90% of all US airline passenger and cargo traffic.
