AMENDMENT NO. 2
PASSENGER FACILITY CHARGE APPLICATION NO. 2
NEWPORT NEWS/WILLIAMSBURG INTERNATIONAL AIRPORT
Pursuant to 14 CFR 158.24, the Peninsula Airport Commission (“PAC”) owner and operator of the Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport (“Airport”), hereby provides public notice of its intent to amend an existing Passenger Facility Charge (“PFC”) Application (“Amendment No.1 to PFC Application No. 2”) approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (“FAA”) in its Final Agency Decision dated December 21, 2011 pursuant to 14 CFR 158.37(b).
In Amendment No. 2 to PFC Application No 2, the PAC is seeking approval to amend the PFC Impose and Use approval amount of one project. The PAC intends to increase the Impose and Use authority from $15,866,709 to $20,114,239. Although the PAC is increasing the overall impose and use authority for Amendment No. 2 to PFC Application No. 2, the increase is associated with one project, PWE 2.19 FIS Finish, which is being funded with a combination of State grant funds, Airport cash and PFC’s. The PFC’s being collected to fund this project is now estimated to increase from $1,050,000 to $5,297,530, an increase of $4,247,530. The PAC estimates using $20,114,239 in PFC revenue to pay for or reimburse PFC eligible costs of the PWE’s in PAC’s Amendment No. 2 to PFC Application No. 2.
The PAC proposes to impose a $4.50 PFC per revenue enplaned passenger to pay the PFC eligible costs of the PWE’s included in this Amendment No. 2 to PFC Application No. 2.
The proposed Charge Effective Date for Amendment No. 2 to PFC Application No. 2 is July 1, 2010 and the estimated Charge Expiration Date is March 1, 2025.
This Public Notice is effective September 25, 2013. Public comments, if any, are required to be submitted to the Airport no later than October 30, 2013.
More detailed project information is available concerning the proposed PFC and the Airport improvements by writing to the Executive Director, Newport News/Williamsburg International Airport, 900 Bland Boulevard, Suite G, Newport News, Virginia, 23602-4319.
