Taxes, Fees and Charges
Air Transportation Charges
Navigation, Fuel and Insurance Surcharge (NFI): This surcharge is collected to cover the navigation fees that Air Borealis pays to NAV Canada, partially offset the volatility of fuel prices, and partially offset the cost of aviation insurance. The Navigation, Fuel and Insurance surcharge is $65 plus tax per one-way ticket, excluding Intra-Coastal flight routings. Tickets on Air Borealis also have a fuel surcharge which is $5 plus tax per one-way ticket on Intra-Coastal flight routings and $30 plus tax per one-way ticket to/from Goose Bay flight routings.
Landing Fee: As a result of the Government imposed landing fee in September 2015, $18.00 plus tax is added to ticket prices for passengers travelling to Postville (YSO), Makkovik (YMN), Hopedale (YHO), Nain (YDP), Rigolet (YRG), Williams Harbour (YWM), Black Tickle (YBI), Charlottetown (YHG), St. Lewis (YFX), Port Hope Simpson (YHA), Cartwright (YCA) and Mary’s Harbour (YMH). This fee is for landing only and will not be added to tickets departing these coastal locations.
Airport Improvement Fees: Airport Improvement Fees are additional fees charged to departing and connecting passengers at an airport. It is levied by Transport Canada or an airport management corporation; the proceeds are usually intended for funding of major airport improvements or expansion or airport service. We collect these fees at the time of ticketing on behalf of the airports; these are reflected in the additional charges portion of your fare.
