The US Department of Transportation (DOT) has fined Aerolineas Argentinas $50,000 for violating the DOT's new rule on full-fare advertising by not including government taxes and other fees in advertised airfares.

The violation was discovered after airfare searches made by the Department's Aviation Enforcement Office on the airline's website after 26 January returned separate listings of base fares for outbound and inbound legs that did not include additional government taxes and fees.

Furthermore, Aerolineas has been ordered to cease and desist from further violations.
