View all taxes and service fees
All government authorities impose taxes on air transportation. These taxes are charged at the discretion of each country’s government authority, and may be adjusted from time to time to account for inflation and/or currency fluctuation. Some types of government taxes may not be included in your all-in fare, and must be paid separately from your booking – for instance, the additional tariff charged by the Canadian Transport Agency (CTA).
