Teterboro Landing Fees Set To Increase January 1

 - January 17, 2007, 5:35 AM

Landing fees are scheduled to increase January 1 at Teterboro Airport, ostensibly due to higher operating, capital and safety improvement spending at the airport next year and beyond. Planned expenditures include those for pavement overlay and installation of edge lighting, construction of three taxiways, improvement to airfield drainage systems, new aircraft rescue and firefighting vehicles and additional Port Authority police. Effective January 1, aircraft weighing 12,500 pounds or less will be subject to a $22.50 fee. Aircraft weighing 12,501 to 80,000 pounds will be charged $3.15 per 1,000 pounds and those over 80,000 pounds will be charged $5.85 per 1,000 pounds. Written comments on the new fees should be submitted by December 14 to Lanny Rider, airport manager, Teterboro Airport, Port Authority of New York and New Jersey, 90 Moonachie Ave., Teterboro, N.J. 07608.
