John Holland-Kaye, CEO of the UK’s largest airport, Heathrow, has said that the airport is looking to raise the landing fees it charges airlines by as much as 20% in order to secure a return on a £17bn investment in a third runway, the Financial Times has reported. The company proposed increasing the “aeronautical charge” from £20 per passenger to £24, he said. Landing fees are the biggest single source of revenue for Heathrow and were worth £1.5bn last year. They are usually passed on by airlines to passengers.
