The National Airports Corporation has introduced a new Infrastructure and Development charge in addition to the current departure tax and security tax.
All passengers departing from KK , Mfuwe, Harry Mwaanga and Simon Mwansa Kapwepwe airports are now required to pay the new tax, effective immediately.
International passengers departing from these airports will be required to pay K52.80 (about US $10.00) and domestic passengers, K26.70 (about $5.00).
Tickets issued before 15 June 2013 will be exempt from the new tax.
Schedule passengers with a ticket issued after 15 June 2013 booked via one of the major Global Distribution Systems will have the tax included in their ticket.
