OTTAWA—Airline passengers are getting hit with fee hikes to pay for tens of millions in new security equipment at Canadian airports.
Transport Minister John Baird announced Thursday that the security fee was going up to cover the cost of extra security screeners and scanners.
Fees now range from $5 to $16, depending on the length of a flight and its destination.
The cost of the fee on a one-way domestic ticket will rise by $2.58; for a trans-border ticket it rises $4.37 and $8.91 on an international ticket.
