Planning on flying this summer? Get ready to pay more.

The Transportation Security Administration is raising passenger security fees effective July 21 at U.S. airports.

Tthe fees help fund TSA airport security efforts.

Tight now air travelers are paying $2.50 for each plane they take to get to a destination.

The fee is capped at two plane rides each way but the TSA will start charging a flat fee of $5.60 each way, no matter how many planes you board en route.

Congress approved the higher fees last December to help fund the TSA.
