Ticket Surcharges

I asked a question regarding BA charges on this site the other day and received a considered reply.

However, now I’m in the mood, I got to pondering the other charges on my air ticket:

Airport Passenger duty (from UK): 80 pounds

Passenger servce charge: 15 pounds

BAA’s web site state that there are an average of 180,600 passengers per day use Heathrow.

This means a total of 14 million pounds/day for Passenger duty and 2,7 million for passenger service charge. The APD goes to to government – very nice.

I assume the PSC goes to BAA – this works out to a touch under 989 million per year…..not bad for a business that’s reluctant to invest too much for snow clearance facilities.

As an aside, Beijing (Peking) airport charges a flat rate of 9 pounds/day for allk pax.
