Policy Regarding Airport Rates and Charges
Document Number: 08-1430
Type: Notice
Date: 2008-07-14
Agency: Department of Transportation, Office of the Secretary;, Federal Aviation Administration
This action amends the Department of Transportation (``Department'') ``Policy Regarding the Establishment of Airport Rates and Charges'' published in the Federal Register on June 21, 1996 (``1996 Rates and Charges Policy''). This action adopts three amendments to the 1996 Rates and Charges Policy (two modifications and one clarification). These amendments are intended to provide greater flexibility to operators of congested airports to use landing fees to provide incentives to air carriers to use the airport at less congested times or to use alternate airports to meet regional air service needs. Any charges imposed on international operations must also comply with the international obligations of the United States.
