PHL Unveils New Incentive Program
- Philadelphia International Airport is waiving some landing fees as part of its Covid-19 Air Service Recovery and Incentive Program. The program is aimed at restoring air service and attracting new flights. A tiered program, it waives fees for new international service and for new entrant carriers serving existing routes. On the domestic side, the program waives landing fees for one year for West Coast, Hawaii, and Alaska routes, as well as for new entrants on any route. The incentives also extend to cargo carriers operating underserved routes.
- Munich airport is slowly re-opening. Flights can resume to Terminal 1 on July 8. The airport had been operating flights only out of Terminal 2 during the height of the pandemic. It now says operations have increased to the point that Terminal 1 is required to handle the traffic and to ensure public health measures are observed. About 200 cargo and passenger flights per day now operate from Munich, and traffic has increased to 10,000 daily passengers. The airport expects flights to increase to 250 daily flights early next month.
