New airfare rules in effect

January 30, 2012 10:25:49 AM PST
All advertised airline ticket fares must now include mandatory government taxes and fees in the price.

Previously, those additional costs were tacked on later.

The Department of Transpiration says the new rules should make fares easier to understand and without hidden costs.

As of Tuesday, airlines are also required to display any baggage fees on the first screen that contains a quote for a fare.
