, and this is the case at most US airports, an airport's landing fee is based upon the max landing weight of an aircraft. This figure is computed per 1,000 pounds of landed weight.
In addition, signatory carriers (those that have signed leases with the airport operator) will generally pay a lesser landing fee than non-signatory carriers (those that don't have signed leases).
's landing fees are:
$3.44 per 1,000 pounds for signatory carriers.
$4.21 per 1,000 pounds for non-signatory carriers.
Our landing fees do rank higher than most other US airports, but our airline counter/space/office fees are a lot less than most.
