Airport Tax[edit]

A duty levied on passengers for passing through an airport and is included in the air ticket fare. The amount of tax depends on a number of factors including the popularity of the airport, the size of the aircraft, and whether it is an international or domestic flight. Airport taxes represent the main opposing factor to further decreases in airline ticket prices. Airport taxes are deemed to be one of the ways of reducing the environmental carbon footprint, greenhouse-based warming and the environmental degradation attendant to increased tourism, particularly to scenic and heritage sites.
