Uber and Lyft are backing down from their threats to stop serving Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport over higher fees.

An Uber spokesperson confirmed the decision on Friday, matching a decision announced earlier in the week by Lyft.

The Arizona Supreme Court this month rejected a challenge to the new $4 pickup and drop-off fees, clearing the way for the airport to implement them.

The airport previously charged Uber and Lyft $2.66 for pickups and nothing for drop-offs.

The Republican-controlled Arizona Legislature is considering a bill to reverse the city's fees, but the legislative session is on hold due to concerns about the coronavirus outbreak.
