Fees to Increase at Calgary Airport

With a $2 billion expansion project ongoing at Calgary Airport, passengers flying out of the airport will be paying more out of their own pockets to help pay the tab for the expansion.   March 1 will see the introduction of a new airport improvement fee of $30 for flights departing from Calgary Airport, which is a $5 increase from the current fee of $25.  This higher fee will bring Calgary into first position, along with Fort McMurray, for the second-highest airport improvement tax in the country.  The highest is Bathurst, N.B., at $40.


Jody Moseley, a Calgary Airport Authority spokesperson, says that repeated increases are necessary to help pay for the expansion, which will give the airport a new runway in 2014 and a new international terminal in 2015.  She added that they do not take raising the fees lightly, but they are the only airport in Canada making such big improvements.  In addition, the airport does not receive any government funding for capital projects.
