Taipei, Oct. 18 (CNA) Taiwan Taoyuan International Airport is planning to raise airport charges for 201610180017t0001airlines, in order to raise more money to fund several major construction projects, the airport’s operator said Tuesday.

Airport charges are paid by airlines for the use of airport facilities. They include landing, freight and other charges related to the use of airport infrastructure such as runways and passenger terminals.

According to Taoyuan International Airport Corp., it has not altered its airport charges for the last 15 years, and the planned higher levy remains less costly than those charged in other major foreign airports in Asia.

For instance, the levy charged for each of the popular A330-300 aircraft at Tokyo’s Narita International Airport is about 324 percent of that charged at Taoyuan, while the levy for the same model of plane at Hong Kong International Airport is about 187 percent of that charged at Taoyuan.    [FULL  STORY]
