In line with the five-year Permission that was promulgated by the Regulating Committee for Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) in June 2007, ACSA today announced passenger and airline tariffs adjustments for the 2009/10 financial year.
The new tariffs were published last Friday in the Government Gazette and will be applicable with effect from 1 May 2009.
Currently, the Passenger Service Charge (PSC) tariff structure is follows: R41 for domestic, R85 for regional (Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia and Swaziland) and R112 for international flights. The new PSC for 2009/10 financial year will be as follows: R49 for domestic, R102 for regional and R135 for international. All amounts mentioned are inclusive of VAT.
The new tariff structure adjustment of 18.5 percent is a reflection of the additional infrastructure that we have completed and is in use. It should also be noted that 11.5 percentage points of the adjusted tariff structure relates to inflation.
This increase will be the last one in terms of the current promulgated Permission. ACSA is currently preparing for the application of New Permission of tariff structures, effective from 1 April 2010 to March 2015, to incorporate the R16 billion pre-funded assets that are currently under construction
ACSA wishes to remind passengers that the amount on their airline tickets quoted as ‘airport taxes’ is not fully attributable to ACSA services but a major component thereof relates airline and government levies and charges. Only the Passenger Service Charge component accrues to ACSA.
