On Monday, airline tickets are going to cost more, but the airlines won't get the money.

The Transportation Security Administration fees are going up to $5.60 for all flights. The current fee is $2.50 for a non-stop flight or $5 for a connecting flight.

Congress approved the increase back in December to help reduce the deficit. The new fees are expected to raise more than $12.5 billion per year.
