What makes up turnaround charges & taxes from around the world?

Global airport charging structures are made up of various different elements. The major categorisations of airport taxes and fees are:

Runway Charges

Runway charges are the fees charged by the airport to the airline each time an aircraft arrives at (landing fees) or departs (take-off fees) an airport.

Passenger Charges

These fees are charged per on-board passenger by the airport. These charges are normally billed to the airline, which then passes the cost onto the passenger.

Security Charges

Charges levied by the airport to airlines that support the provision of services for protecting citizens working at or travelling through an airport.

Infrastructure Charges

Charges for all 'hard' facilities at an airport. Normally consists of the costs for terminal maintenance, ramps, pavements and aprons. Usually charged to the airline on a per-plane basis.

Parking Charges

The fees related to leaving an aircraft stationary at an airport. Normally parking charges are levied on a time basis, but can also be by weight or size of aircraft.

Noise Charges

Charged by airports in relation to noise impact. Aircraft types are normally categorised and a fee placed against each according to their relative impact.

Terminal Navigation

These charges are for services used when flying in airport-controlled airspace. Can be levied at many different sources including airport, government or a separate country-wide body.

En-Route Navigation

Normally levied by the state, these charges are for services used when flying in controlled airspace.

Government Taxes

Taxes, normally on a per passenger basis, levied by the state and often across the entire state but sometimes on an individual airport level.
