On April 30, 2013, the Santa Monica City Council adopted Resolution 10759 which set the landing fee at $5.48 per thousand pounds of certificated maximum landing weight, and applied this fee to both itinerant and based aircraft at the Santa Monica Airport. These changes to the landing fee structure became effective on August 1, 2013. This resolution was adopted by the Council pursuant to Santa Monica Municipal Code section 10.04.06.100 which states: Owners or operators of aircraft operating at the Airport shall pay a landing fee. Landing fee amounts may be set and from time to time amended by Resolution of the City Council.
