South Africa Cuts Air Passenger Taxes

by Lorys Charalambous, Tax-News.com, Cyprus

09 January 2017

On January 5, Airports Company South Africa announced that it has received approval to charge reduced air passenger duties, aircraft landing fees, and aircraft parking fees, with effect from April 1, 2017.

The new tariff decision will see a reduction in airport charges of 35.5 percent for the 2017/18 financial year. The charges will then rise by 5.8 percent in 2018/19 and 7.4 percent in 2019/20.

The new air passenger duties (including value added tax) will be ZAR82 (USD5.96) per departing domestic passenger (previously ZAR127); ZAR169 per departing passenger for an airport within Botswana, Lesotho, Namibia, or Swaziland (previously ZAR263); and ZAR223 per departing international passenger (previously ZAR346).

Aircraft landing fees and aircraft parking fees vary according to the maximum take-off weight of an aircraft and length of stay. Both sets of charges also vary further according to whether the flight originated within South Africa, Namibia, Lesotho, Botswana, or Swaziland, or outside of South Africa.
