Airport fees going up

The nation’s price regulating agency has increased fees for airport services from 8.82 to 9.59 percent for commercial jets, it announced Tuesday.

The decision covers Juan Santamaría, Tobias Bolaños in Pavas, the airport in Limón and Daniel Oduber in Liberia.

The rates are based on the tonnage of the aircraft, and commercial jets pay a premium.

The agency, the Authoridad Reguladora de Servicios Públicos noted that it rejected a 33 percent increase proposed by the Consejo Ténico de Aviación Civil.

The Authoridad said that the new rates position airports here well compared to those elsewhere. The fees are supposed to be for parking the aircraft and for the use of runways and ramps.
