New charges could up prices at Memphis airport

MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The price to fly could soon increase at Memphis International Airport.

The price increase can be blamed on something called a passenger facility charge, which pays for airport renovations.

Officials are proposing to begin using the fee to help the construction at Concourse B and other infrastructure improvements.

The charge could cost fliers up to $8.50.

No word yet on when or if the fee will be imposed.
