    The Air Transport Association, the trade group representing the largest U.S. airlines, today launched a new website as part of its fight against two new proposed passenger security and airline departure taxes. From the website, visitors "can urge Congress to reject punitive taxes against airline passengers and save American jobs and air service to their community," ATA says in a press release. In the same release, ATA says nearly 10,000 airline indusry jobs could be cut within one year if the taxes are implemented.
