INQUIRER STAFF WRITER
US Airways Group Inc. was fined $40,000 today by the U.S. Department of Transportation for not disclosing full ticket prices on its Web site.


The Transportation Department said it imposed the civil fine because US Airways violated rules that require airline advertisements to disclose the full price on the first Internet screen that provides a fare quote.

The department's Aviation Enforcement Office said that "for a short period of time," when consumers searched US Airways' Web site for one-way flights, the Tempe, Ariz., carrier provided fares that did not include additional taxes and fees, or any notice that the additional charges would be added later in the transaction.
