Louisville International Airport Lowers Airline Fees

January 31, 2013

The Louisville Regional Airport Authority Board has lowered various fees for signatory airlines at Louisville International Airport, effective February 1, 2013. Included in the reductions is a 4.9% decrease (from $1.422 to $1.352 per 1,000 lbs. of maximum gross landed weight) in landing fees with the savings passed directly to the airport’s airline partners.

Skip Miller, Executive Director of the Authority, noted, “The airline industry continues to make adjustments in an era of unpredictable fuel prices and fluctuating demand for passenger and cargo services. This reduction in landing fees and other rental charges at Louisville International helps reduce the airlines’ operating costs and demonstrates our continuing commitment to retain and enhance passenger and cargo air services to our community.”
