Winnipeg airport improvement fee rising to $25 in April 2013

  • Print

The airport improvement fee at Winnipeg's James Armstrong Richardson International Airport will rise to $25 on April 1, 2013.

Winnipeg Airports Authority made the decision Friday, hiking the fee imposed on every airline ticket that goes through the airport by $5.

The extra money raised will go toward improving the airport’s runways, lighting and equipment, and not toward the new terminal, which opened in 2011, said airports authority spokeswoman Christine Payne.

The last time Winnipeg’s airport improvement fee went up was Jan. 1, 2008, when it climbed to $20 from $15.

Winnipeg’s $25 fee will be similar to other Canadian airports, such as Toronto’s Pearson International Airport, which is also $25. Calgary International Airport will raise its improvement fee to $30, the most expensive in Canada, in March 2013.
