HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -  Flying out of Huntsville is about to get more expensive.

Security fees are set to rise nationwide, from $5 per ticket to more than $11, July 21. The fee helps fund the Transportation Security Administration.

The Rocket City has long been the most expensive airport in the last several years. The airport’s board has been aggressively marketing Huntsville International, trying to lure more passengers away from cheaper cities.

Their strategy may be working – the board reports that passenger traffic is up 3 percent compared to this time last year.
