WHITEHORSE, YUKON – June 29, 2017 – New Airport Improvement Fee (AIF) for The Yellowknife Airport
The Yellowknife Airport has implemented an Airport Improvement Fee (AIF) of $20/ticket for passengers leaving NWT on or after July 1st, 2017 along with a 300% increase in landing fees also effective July 1st, 2017. These cost increases will result in travel cost increases for Air North passengers leaving Yellowknife of approximately $36/passenger for one way travel and $52/passenger for round trip travel. Air North along with other operators has expressed concerns about the magnitude of these increases but thusfar we have had no success in convincing GNWT to reconsider.
