Airlines are taking a hit from rising ticket prices, with some offering better deals on tickets and airlines are taking steps to prevent those prices from rising again.
The White House on Thursday announced that it will give airlines more leeway to negotiate lower ticket prices for some travelers.
The order is the latest in a series of moves by the Trump administration to curb skyrocketing ticket prices.
It comes amid a national debate over airline pricing.
The order is part of a broader effort to address soaring ticket prices and boost the nation’s ability to compete with China, a key U.S. ally, in an era of low oil prices.
At least two large airlines, Delta and United, have announced price hikes in recent weeks.
Delta, which also has its own airline, announced that fares on its domestic flights would increase.
Delta has also announced that its international flights would be cheaper on its flights from Orlando to London from this coming summer.
Delta said the price hikes would take effect beginning July 1, but did not specify the date.
United has not announced pricing changes but said that it would be raising fares on domestic flights by $1.25 on July 1 and July 3, and by $2 on July 7.
All of the airlines that made the announcements Thursday said the prices would be capped at the rate of inflation.
United said its fare hike would begin July 1.
Delta, United and Southwest also said that they would be increasing fares starting July 3.
The hikes are the latest moves in a wave of price increases that have hit airlines.
Last month, United announced a price increase on its premium seats on its first class, business and economy seats.
The airline said it would raise its prices by $50 on its own economy seat.
Earlier this month, Southwest Airlines announced a $25 increase to the cheapest economy seats in its first-class business and business class.
Southwest said that on its routes to Las Vegas, New Orleans and San Antonio, the price hike would start on July 3 and end on July 15.
Also last month, Delta said that prices would increase by $3 on its cheapest business and first class fares.
Delta also said on Thursday that it planned to raise its ticket prices on the first class economy and business economy seats, which include food and beverage, by $5 each.
Airlines have also been taking steps, including cutting back on flights, to curb the cost of those prices.
On Thursday, United Airlines said it plans to offer an additional flight to New York from San Francisco that costs $65 instead of the regular $100, and it said it will stop flying from New York to Chicago from this upcoming week.
As part of the plan, United will offer a free, nonrefundable return flight to Los Angeles from Chicago on July 5, and a $50 return flight from Los Angeles to New Orleans from July 12, and then the company will offer free flights to San Francisco, Chicago and Houston.
Southwest Airlines said in a statement that it was also reducing fares for the first and second class on its most popular routes to Los Angles, Dallas, Houston and San Diego from July 15 to August 1, and to Los Gatos, Orlando and Austin from August 8 to August 15.
Southwest also has started reducing prices on its popular domestic routes to Dallas, Detroit, Cincinnati and Atlanta from August 1 to August 30.
The company said it planned a similar change to its most frequent routes to Austin and Houston from August 7 to August 8.
On Thursday, American Airlines announced it would reduce its most expensive tickets for the coming week by 25 percent on flights to Orlando and Miami.
American also said it was reducing its most costly first class seats for the next two weeks.
American said it has also reduced the price of the most expensive business and second-class seats for its most profitable routes, including its most heavily populated destinations.
American’s first class seat costs $100 and its business and regular seat costs about $40.
U.S.-based airlines, which are not part of Trump’s administration, also have taken steps to reduce their prices.
Airlines such as Southwest, Delta, American and United have slashed fares for their business and frequent-flier routes.
In September, Delta slashed its prices for most of its routes by $40 for most passengers, including most flights.
Airbnb, the online rental-hosting platform, has been working with airlines to reduce prices for its popular travel services, including Airbnbs and Airbnb, as part of its efforts to help keep the company’s growth.
In September, Airbnb reduced its average annual fee by nearly 40 percent for flights from New Orleans to Miami, from $200 to $180.
