airport access fee is a fee paid by the car rental companies to the airport authority, for the use of shuttle vehicles, etc - usually passed on to the consumer.

"Airport access fee" in the context of travel and transportation refers to a fee that is charged to passengers or airlines for the use of an airport's facilities and services.

  1. In the context of air travel, an "airport access fee" is often charged to passengers as a separate fee in addition to the cost of their airfare. This fee is used to cover the costs of maintaining and operating the airport, such as terminal facilities, runways, and security. Examples of this fee can be found at certain airports such as John Wayne Airport in California, USA.

  2. In some cases, airlines may also be charged an "airport access fee" for the use of an airport's facilities and services. These fees can be used to cover costs such as landing fees, parking fees, and terminal rental fees.

  3. Some airports charge a "passenger facility charge" or PFC which is a fee that is collected by the airport from passengers using the airport facilities. This fee is used to fund airport improvements and capital projects, such as new runways, taxiways, and parking garages.

  4. Some airports charge a "Security fee" which is a fee that is collected by the airport from passengers using the airport facilities. This fee is used to fund the security facilities and security check-in process.

These are examples of airport access fee, but again, the context may provide different meaning to the word.
