Increase in air fares on charter flights

Increase in air fares on charter flights

The Ministerial Agreement 002 that increases the rates for charter flights took effect yesterday, March 10, with changes: the new rate will be charged in 60 days and, in addition, there will be a tariff. Álex Pérez, Deputy Minister of Transportation Management of the Ministry of Transport and Public Works (Mtop); and Luis Carrera, director of the General Directorate of Civil Aviation (DGAC), explained these adjustments yesterday. According to Agreement 002, issued on February 9 of this year, those companies that use the airports managed by the General Directorate of Civil Aviation (DGAC), which are Latacunga and Manta, will maintain the payment of USD 400. use concessioned terminals such as Mariscal Sucre of Quito and José Joaquín de Olmedo of Guayaquil will have to pay USD 20,000 per flight. The measure was questioned by exporters and airlines, after which the Ministry suspended the decision until March 10. The measure went into effect yesterday, but with two changes. Initially the Ministry said that the new rates would come into effect immediately and without the need for the measure to be published in the Official Registry. Now, according to the authorities, the start of collection will be extended to 60 days (next May 10). The second change is related to the amount to be paid. At the beginning, a payment of USD 20,000 was set for those who operate in concessioned terminals. Now a tariff will be prepared, which must be ready in two months and whose maximum limit will be USD 20 000. According to Perez, the rates can be USD 5,000, 10,000, etc.
