Yet Another Hit for Air Passengers

Oct 16th, 2010 | By

The new owners of Durham Tees Valley Airport are the latest to remove cash from passengers by charging a Passenger Facility Fee. This fancy name can shield anything but what it amounts to is that adults (newly defined by the airport as being over 15) will pay £6 on departing flights and children between 3 and 15 will pay £2. A family of two children and two adults now has an extra £16 to find each time they go on holiday.
And you’re going to love the excuse the owners of the airport, Peel Airports, have given for the charge.
