Bahamas airfair surcharge

Have you guys read this yet?

The Bahamas gov't is going to add $75 to each one way ticket ($150 roundtrip). Basically a 2-3 rum punch per day hit to our wallets for a week long trip.

I might start booking tickets now for November and January before it happens but I'm not sure if I'll just get hit by jetBlue afterwards anyway.

I read this as $75:00 per flight, not per passenger, but I could have misunderstood.

Maybe I got it wrong in my rush to read the article. If that's all it is then I don't get why the airlines are in a panic.
