Dallas/Fort Worth Int. Airport Lowers Landing Fees

Travel News Asia Latest Travel News Podcasts Videos Tuesday, 7 May 2013

Dallas/Fort Worth (DFW) International Airport Board is lowering its landing fees for airlines by $9 million through the remainder of the fiscal year.

From June through the end of September 2013, the landing fee will be reduced by 69 cents to $2.36 per 1,000 pounds of maximum gross landing weight of an aircraft.

This cost benefit for the airlines comes as the airport is experiencing a surplus of revenue totaling $13.5 million more than projected for fiscal year 2013. Much of the revenue surplus is attributed to concessions and rental car service, both performing over budget as the airport continues to experience an uptick in passenger traffic.

DFW Airport is knocking it out of the park this year and achieving all of its goals, said Chief Financial Officer, Chris Poinsatte.

DFW International Airport is the fourth busiest and the highest capacity airport in the world, with seven runways, five terminals and 155 active gates.

DFW is also rated among the best large airports in the world for customer service, ranking in the top five in surveys by Airports Council International for five consecutive years.

The airport is building on its future with a seven-year, $2.3 billion Terminal Renewal and Improvement Program (TRIP) designed to modernize its original four passenger terminals.
