Starting in mid-July, airline passengers will be paying more fees for security at the airport. Following orders from Congress, the Transportation Security Administration is poised to raise the security screening fee to $5.60 each way. This fee, which is included in your ticket price, is up from $2.50 each way for a nonstop flight and $5 for a trip including connections. In 2013, the security fee on passengers raised more than $1.8 billion for the TSA, or about 20% of its $8 billion annual budget. Congress approved higher TSA fees as part of a December budget deal.
