Large Hub Landing Fee Rate and Rates and Charges Books

Most U.S. airports recalculae airline rates and charges annually and send a rate package to the airlines for discussion.  After airline consultation, an airport may post a simplified version online for public access. This web page is a database-driven summary of airline rates and charges files of U.S. large hub airports. Those rate books may offer useful information on the rate calculation (such as the MIA rate book) and rate level. However, it is difficult to compare rates between airports

  • Landing fee rates are relatively comparable, because they are applied to similar activity measurements, such as maximum gross landed weight or take-off weight
  • Terminal rental rates are not comparable, because there may be different weight factors, such as 2.0x rental rates for holdroom space
  • Some airports prepare calculations of per-turn airline payment per enplaned passenger.  Those calculations are much more useful for analyzing airport costs.
