Amarillo Airport Seeking Approval for New Fee

You could soon have to pay another fee when you fly out of Amarillo.

The Rick Husband Amarillo International Airport is seeking approval from the Federal Aviation Administration to add a passenger facility charge.

That means you would pay a fee of $4.50 every time you fly.

The funds would be used for the airport's terminal building improvement project.

Officials say the charge would be collected by the airlines as part of the overall ticket price and remitted back to the airport.

If the fee is approved it would generate nearly $2 million dollars annually.
