No further aid for airlines in proposed US gov't COVID assistance package

Two congressional aides have told Reuters that a U.S. Senate Republican coronavirus spending proposal set to be introduced today will not include any new government assistance for U.S. airlines or airports.
 
The measure, a pared-back version of a $1 trillion bill introduced in July by Republicans, comes amid a furious push by airlines and unions to get a six-month extension of a $25 billion airline payroll support program set to expire at the end of the month.
 
It also excludes $10 billion in assistance for airports that was part of the earlier bill.
