MIA Airline Costs Soar Sky High

Miami International Airport estimates it will have to nearly double the fees it charges airlines by 2015 because of rising operating costs.

Klaskin last year studied five airports nationwide that are similar to MIA. Then, San Francisco had the highest per-passenger fee at $17.27. Boston ($12.89), Dallas-Fort Worth ($8.40) and Chicago O'Hare ($8.22) were cheaper than Miami.

Earlier this year, MIA agreed to waive landing fees to airlines starting new service. No one has yet qualified for the waivers.
