According to the company owned by the French group Vinci, this rise in airport fees follows both the new model provided for in the concession contract with the State and the general increase in inflation.

The fees proposed to airlines, which have yet to be approved by the National Civil Aviation Authority (ANAC), are 35 cents in the Azores, 79 cents in Madeira, 81 cents in Porto, 80 cents in Faro and €1.53 in Lisbon.

According to ANA, this proposal to update the regulated fees – for traffic, ground handling and baggage handling – for 2023 already follows the new model provided for in the contract with the State, which will last until the end of the concession period, in 2062. This means that, as of next year, the economic regulation formula of the concession contract removes the contribution of commercial revenues in the calculation of fees, which leads to an increase slightly above inflation.
