As of September 1st flying out of Edmonton will cost you $5 more as the Airport Improvement Fee will increase to $20. The increase is to be used to fund the ongoing $1 billion expansion that is set to be completed by 2012.
At the $20 level YEG comes in line with many other Canadian AIF such as Calgary’s at $21 and Montreal’s at $20 and still reasonable compared to Bathurst NB’s $40 fee……. 40 bucks? Wow!
