Johannesburg – Although a massive reduction in airport charges will kick in at Airports Company SA (Acsa) airports on 1 April 2017, it is by no means a given that it will lead to a reduction in airfares.

Acsa announced on Thursday a cut in airport charges of 35.5% for the 2017/18 financial year. It will be followed by an increase in charges of 5.8% in the 2018/19 financial year and an increase of 7.4% in the 2019/20 financial year.   

A new permission to levy airport charges at Acsa airports was determined by the independent industry regulating committee. It was promulgated on 23 December 2016 and its impact on airport charges was published in the Government Gazette on 29 December 2016.
