What Does This Tax Code Mean?

Mon Oct 18, 2010 1:42 pm

I have booked some flights to Madrid and in addition to the fare there are the usual collection of fees and taxes listed on the e-Ticket.
Some I can understand, but there is one that I am unfamiliar with.

Listed are:
AUD47.00AU AUD6.05WG AUD23.39WY AUD11.20JD AUD2.60QV

AUD is the currency;
AU is the passenger movement charge for Australia (International);
WG is Australian Safety and Security charge;
WY is the Australian Passenger Services Charge; and
QV is a Spanish Security Charge.

But what is JD? I don't see it listed in the old IATA list that I have and don't really want to fork out $1,500 to get a new list.

Anyone able to help?

I believe it is the Spanish Airport Services Charge.

I just did a dummy search on ITA and got the following result

Quote:


Fare (A1): EK SYDMAD WLLGPAU1 fare (rules) , psgr type ADT AUD 825.00
Fare (A2): EK MADSYD WLLGPAU1 fare (rules) , psgr type ADT AUD 825.00
Tax: Australian Passenger Movement Charge AUD 47.00
Tax: Australian Int'l Passenger Service Charge AUD 51.16
Tax: Spanish Airport Services Charge €7.93
Tax: Spanish Security Tax €1.85
Total for 1 adult passenger: AUD 1762.06
(as of Monday, October 18, 2010 9:52am)



SYD EK X/DXB EK MAD 758.37WLLGPAU1 EK X/DXB EK SYD 758.37WLLGPAU1 NUC 1516.74 END ROE 1.087848 FARE AUD 1650.00 XT 47.00AU 51.16WY 11.20JD 2.70QV

A quick currency calculation reveals EUR7.93 is equal to AUD11.17 which rounds up to the AUD11.20 figure on your tax.

The website i used was http://matrix1.itasoftware.com/cvg/dispatch

Hope that helps
