Can anyone give me the list of the world's top 20 most expensive airports in terms of landing fee?

I know HKG and NRT charge high fees. Not sure how much though.

Thanks!

I think checking out the fees at London City LCY may result in an immediate need of Oxygen  Wink
I don't remember exactly as we decided not to serve it, exactly for this reason, so I don't want to publish wrong numbers but they might be on their homepage.

There was a thread not long ago where they said YYZ was about to become one of the airports with highest landing fees. Let me check if there are any numbers.

Cheers

I thought Heathrow was supposed to be expensive, but here are the fees for LCY taken from http://www.lcacc.org/fees/fees05(1).pdf : (peak hours)

Landing fee £700
Passenger load supplement £12.11 domestic; £14.61 international (per departing passenger)
Security levy £3.52 (per departing passenger)
Parking fees (stands 1-10) £222 per hour, first 40 mins free
Apron service charge £1.38 (per arr/dep passenger)
Apron service charge 70+ seater aircraft £55
Ground power £17 per 15 mins

Assuming a 75 seater aircraft, full on arrival and departure, international flight, and parks for an hour with ground power during that time, that works out at £2612.

LCY wouldn't qualify for that list because it's based on a 744. Obviously whoever compiled it wasn't able to pro rata the fees and come up with a theoretical 744 charge.

I assume that doesn't include the millions of dollars in damage landing a 744 at LGA might bring about.  crazy

One tends to think that the most important airports in the world are the ones with the highest landing fees

i.e. JFK,LHR,LAX,ORD,HKG,SYD,etc...

I also thought ZRH was going to be in the top ten, but it's not the case. At least it must be pretty close to it.

Of course, none of these fees apply to WN or other LCCs. Basically cut them in half.

Where's the level playing field??

This is the reason why Skyway now midwest connect had to stop flying to RDU. Our flights would always be packed to the brim, crammed to MTOW every day. We had to stop because the landing fees took so much from that route's profits.

RDU landing fees was just raised last year.. before that, it was $0.87/1000 lb.. or are you just joshing me?

Say what?? Why is gas soooo expensive? I pay way less than that. Are these fuel prices for GA and Biz only? How much of deicer does it take to deice Biz Jet?

A little story for you.

I remember a while back two U.S. military aircraft did a touch and go at some airport in Tokyo. The pilots thought it was a real hoot and boy did the people at the airport enjoy it.

Boy was their commanding officer piping hot when he got the landing charges bill on his table.

Quoting SkyexRamper (Reply 15):

SkyexRamper,

MTOW is maximum takeoff weight, not actual takeoff weight. When landing fees are calculated for MTOW, it doesn't matter what the actual load is, only the rated MTOW of the aircraft (specified on airworthiness or aircraft registration).

So saying that you stopped because the aircraft was crammed to MTOW every day doesn't make sense, as there would be no difference for the landing fee, if the aircraft was empty or full, you'd still pay the same landing fee for that particular aircraft.

Other charges such as passenger handling, busing, and catering can add significant fees at different airports, but landing fees based on MTOW will always be the same regardless of load.

The "Landing Fee" itself is actually not very expensive in ZRH. What makes it so expensive is all the rest coming along: ZRH has one of the most expensive passenger fees around and Skyguide providing the ATC asks quite a bit for approach control. Then you will find some minor fees like emission, noise etc. and that makes up quite a bit if you count all together.

you're telling me that an airline stopped flying a route because it was too full? that's insane! landing fees are a proportional to your weight at landing, so whether you are half full or full to the brim, you're going to pay about the same percentage. would you rather pay 5% of $10,000 or 5% of $100,000?
