The airport construction fee is ridiculously renewed and the passengers will be slaughtered by the passengers.

The airport construction fee collected since 1992 has totaled more than 30 billion yuan. On November 3, the reporter learned from the Civil Aviation Administration of China that due to the large gap in airport infrastructure construction at this stage in China, the airport construction fee will not be cancelled in the near future. (November 4, "Beijing Morning News")

The lack of funding for airport infrastructure construction has become a reason for continuing to collect airport construction fees. The logic of this ridiculousness can be revealed through such a question, that is, what is the purchase of the majority of passengers? Since passengers only purchase air passenger services, they naturally only have to pay for the provision of such a service, and there is no obligation to pay for airport infrastructure. It is as if people go to the supermarket to pay only for the goods they buy, without having to pay for the construction, renovation or renovation of the mall.

Secondly, air passenger transport is also a kind of public transport. It has the same public transport nature as bus and taxi operations. Therefore, although air transport itself is profitable, the main body responsible for airport infrastructure construction and maintenance should be the government. This is profitable from transportation by bus and taxi. However, the funds for road construction and maintenance should be the same as the financial responsibility. Because of this, it is necessary for passengers to bear the cost of airport infrastructure construction, just like bus and taxi passengers need to pay for road construction. The cost is just as unreasonable.

Therefore, the funding gap for airport infrastructure construction should be supplemented by finance. Even if the existing financial capacity for payment is insufficient, it should be resolved through loan. In addition, the airlines are parasitic on the airport and increase revenue through the improvement of the airport infrastructure. Therefore, the airport construction funds can also be negotiated by the airport and the airlines. That is, the airport can negotiate to let the airlines share the gap funds.

As passengers, since they have already paid taxes, the taxes they pay include the corresponding airport construction costs. If they are charged separately, it is tantamount to repeating the taxation to them. Forcing them to assume unnecessary obligations. Therefore, forcing passengers to collect airport infrastructure construction fees is actually the government and airlines to pass on their own responsibilities and burdens to passengers at the expense of passengers' interests and infringement of passengers' rights. The weak passengers play in the interests of the three parties. In the middle of the slaughter of the lamb.

Civil aviation is a monopolistic industry. It is an administrative monopoly to collect airport construction fees through government orders or administrative regulations. Therefore, in order to safeguard the vital interests and legal rights of the masses of passengers, in addition to breaking the monopoly of the industry, the system must be designed to force the government to assume responsibility for public utilities. It should also break the administrative monopoly through legislation and law enforcement to form a power to the government. Effective restrictions, otherwise the public interest will inevitably have to fight for the industry and the department.
