Rates & Incentives
Rickenbacker International Airport (LCK) maintains a strong interest in cargo airline growth. The airport will provide a growth incentive in the form of a landing fee credit for year-over-year growth in charter or scheduled aircraft gross landed weight. A minimum of 2 flights per month is required for incentives to be applicable.
If an operator’s landed weight exceeds the previous year’s landed weight for that same month the operator will receive a 25% discount on the increased landed weight. The savings will immediately benefit the operator, which will automatically receive the credit on the subsequent monthly invoice. The Growth Incentive program also applies to new airlines. An airline with no landed weight in the same month of the previous year will receive a 25% discount on the entire landing fee. See the New Market Incentive for potentially greater savings.
New Market Incentives
The airport also seeks to encourage air cargo service from new markets. Therefore, any scheduled or charter flight activity from a market that does not already have LCK service will receive a 50% discount on all corresponding landing fees for the first 6 months of the new market service. New market service incentives must have at least 4 corresponding frequencies per month for a minimum period of 6 months to qualify for these incentives. After new market incentives expire the air carrier remains eligible for Growth Incentives.
