From an airline point of view, "cost per emplaned passenger" is more important than the component landing fees. Some airports deliberately make landing fees relatively higher than counter/gate rental costs to favor the airlines over GA or charter traffic.

Every now and then, Aviation Daily will publish a list of cost per emp. pax, but I haven't seen one lately. Aviation Daily costs a fortune and the Library of Congress is the only public source for it that I know.

Keep in mind, landing fees found on many web sites are not what commercial carriers pay at those airports. Most fees I have seen listed are what are called "non signatory" or basically an adhoc rate. Carriers whom attain "signatory" status at airport pay significantly less then the "non signatory" adhoc charge.
The difference is basically a commercial airline would enter into a long term operating agreement at an airport covering everything from facilities usage/leases, various per passenger charges, membership in airport management consortiums etc..

I thought it was per 1,000lbs.

I understand that emplanements are the main way of charging carriers to operate into an airport, but I am doing a presentation and needed a fixed charge (landing fee per 1,000lbs was my goal) in order to compare SLC to other airports around the U.S.

I certainly do appreciate the help guys,

not to tell you how to do your report, but here is a suggestion for that since i did a similar project.

select just a couple of airports and go from there.

definitely want to do Atlanta, Cincinnati, and New York Kennedy, for the sake of comparing Delta hubs. perhaps even Dallas - Ft. Worth because they -used- to have an operation there.

then select another airport or two. Chicago's Department of Aviation website has this information listed on their webpage. Then maybe select another airport or two around the country. Sometimes places like DFW, DAL, MCI, email you back right away. Some places like LAS and CVG give you a definite answer if you call them. Some places like IND don't do a damn thing and you have to google the Indy Star.


I can tell you, FYI, St. Louis is $4.07 per 1,000 landed.


EDIT: yes, and do inquire about signatory carrier and non signatory carrier rates. plays a big part at Delta hub airports, I'm sure.

I emailed IND once, to ask when 9L/9R were built (trying to figure the date of an old map). Got a response very promptly.

You are right, my mistake...and the landing fees have actually gone down for JFK, they are now at $4.40 per 1000lbs.

Here are the average landing costs for some acft:

B744 - $3,740.00
B777 - $2,860.00
B767 - $1,760.00
MD11 - $2,900.00

The link I'm providing isn't exactly what you're looking for. But, take a look at pages 23, 24, and 25 for some good info pertinent to your inquiry:
