Passengers can start flying on US airlines as early as Thursday after the House of Representatives approved legislation allowing them to buy holiday party tickets online, a move that could add more revenue to airlines’ coffers.

The holiday party, which began as a small gathering in New York in the early 2000s, has become a popular way for travelers to travel during the Christmas season and is a way for holidaymakers to meet up with family and friends.

The legislation, which was sponsored by Rep. Brian Higgins, R-Ohio, passed on a voice vote Thursday and is expected to take effect as soon as Friday.

The measure, which passed on an 8-1 party line vote, was passed in the House by a vote of 218-194 and would require airlines to list holiday party prices on their websites, as well as to offer discounted flights, food and lodging.

The bill also would allow for a 10% discount on flights and hotel rooms during the holiday period.

The airline industry has been trying to get a tax break on holiday party packages for years.

The last major tax holiday was last year, when the House voted to extend the federal holiday sales tax from Jan. 1 to Dec. 31, 2017.

A bill by former President George W. Bush in 2008 to extend sales tax breaks to holiday parties was killed by a filibuster by Democrats in the Senate.

The holiday party package, however, passed the Senate and is now expected to pass the House.

The House also passed a $20 million holiday party tax credit program that was expected to benefit a wide range of small businesses and the entertainment industry, including theaters, cabarets, movie theaters, golf courses, restaurants and bars.

The measure was also expected to boost the tourism economy.

The United States has been losing travelers to foreign countries during the holidays.

More than 5 million Americans are on flights abroad during the three-month period, according to a December report from the Tourism Industry Association.

Last year, the number of holiday parties in the United States reached an all-time high of nearly 14 million people, according a report from FlightAware, a travel tracking service.
