Airport Charges Passengers for Clean Air

2 posts in this topic

Yep, they've gone and done it, finally found a way to charge us for the very air we breathe. :unsure2:

Plane passengers are used to paying for check-in baggage or priority boarding, but one airport in Venezuela is now charging for the ultimate hidden extra -- air.

Anyone departing from the Simon Bolivar International Airport of Maiquetia in Caracas now faces a levy of 127 bolivars ($18) to pay for a new air conditioning unit installed earlier this year, according to a statement on the airport's.

The airport says its air conditioning system "eliminates contaminants" and injects ozone into the atmosphere to improve the environment and protect the health of passengers.

It boasts that the system is the first of its kind in an airport anywhere in South America and the Caribbean.

Seriously? I don't know who is the bigger scammer, the company that sold the air-conditioning system or the Airport that is applying the charges for the exhorbitant cost of the air-conditioning system they installed. :hmm:
