Landing Fees

PLANEPASS® is a purpose-built aircraft billing solution from Vector Airport Systems (“Vector”) for billing and accounts receivable management. Vector’s PLANEPASS® team will bill and manage all payments for KBRO’s landing fees incurred January 1, 2024, and thereafter. Accompanying this notice is the official Authorization to Bill letter.
