Ketchikan proposes increases on airport fees

Posted: August 6, 2014 - 6:05am

KETCHIKAN — Fees could be going up at the Ketchikan airport.

KRBD reports the Ketchikan Gateway Borough on Monday had the first reading of an ordinance to raise airport fees.

Those include raising the price of the ferry ride to the airport by a dollar, to $6.

Other increases include hiking the rate for a floatplane stall from $61 a month to $73, increasing landing fees for airplanes and charging motorcycle and scooters the same rate as passenger cars on the Gravina side.

The Ketchikan Daily News says the airport operates with a year deficit that runs anywhere from $380,000 to $435,000. That’s even on top of an annual $400,000 subsidy from the state.

The increases on fees, if approved at a second reading, would drop that deficit to $285,000 or less.
