State-owned enterprise Boryspil International Airport (Kyiv), the largest airport of the country, has introduced new discounts for airport charges.
According to the document posted on the airport’s website, it is intended to increase competitiveness of the Boryspil airport, boost passenger flow and airport’s revenue, expand the flight network and attract new carriers to the airport, as well as stimulate airlines as commercial partners of the airport.
Among the charges that are levied at the airport, the following are
indicated: the passenger service charge at the terminal and the charge for taking off/landing the aircraft. According to resolution No. 37 of the Ministry of Infrastructure, the take-off/landing charge for international flights is $10.50 per 1 tonne of maximum take-off weight; for domestic flights – $1.05.
The passenger service charge at the terminal for international flights is
$13 for each passenger; $8.50 for each transit passenger; $2.50 for each domestic passenger.
The base year for calculations is 2017. With the increase the number of passengers serviced by the carrier on regular international flights in the current month in comparison with the same month of the base year, the increase in the servicing of these passengers is calculated. Taking into account the monthly increase, the following discounts can be applied to the charge for the servicing at the terminal: in the first year, a reduction factor of 0.2, the second – 0.4, the third – 0.6 and the fourth – 0.8.
When the carrier increases the number of international regular flights serviced in the current month, the indicator of their increase is calculated. Based on this, the same coefficients as described above can be applied to take-off/landing charges.
When an airline carries transit passengers a coefficient of 0.2 is applied to the charge for servicing at the terminal.
According to the document, discounts are used for passenger servicing at the terminal, the size of which depends on the number of passengers serviced per month.
So with the number of up to 4,999 passengers per month, a discount is not provided. From 5,000 to 9,999 passengers per month it will be 5%; from 10,000 to 19,999 – 10%; from 20,000 to 29,999 – 15%. The maximum discount can be 55% when transporting more than 260,000 passengers per month.
