All aircraft handled through the ExecuJet FBO at Cambridge Airport, UK, will now benefit from a new fee structure.  From July 21, landing fees will be reduced dramatically in an attempt to gain new customers.
The airport says that, typically, a B737/BBJ will see an 87% reduction, a Global Express can expect an 82% reduction, while the landing fee for a Falcon 900 will reduce by 72%.
The new structure centres on the introduction of tiered aircraft bands based on weight, rather than each type being allocated a designated fee charge.  For all business aircraft over 20 tonnes, price bands will be introduced at 10 tonne levels, up to 70 tonnes, then over 100 tonnes at a fixed fee.  Zero-rated landing fees for aircraft uplifting 5,000 litres of fuel are also being introduced for long-haul business jets.
Jon Harper, Business Development Manager for business aviation at Cambridge Airport, commented:  “The former pricing policy did not support our long-term strategy, which is to attract a wider base of business aviation clients, continue development […] for the east of England region and be more competitive against the London centric airports.”
