The general charge compensation system for security checks of passengers and their baggage

By means of the general charge compensation system, all Swedish security-approved airports’ costs for security checks are accumulated and then distributed per passenger. The Swedish Transport Agency will then invoice the cost per security check to the airline carrying the passenger. The charge is the same regardless of which airport a passenger departs from.   

The Swedish Transport Agency will determine the charges based on the airport holder’s estimated costs for security checks, forecasted passenger volumes and The Swedish Transport Agency’s costs for the administration of the compensation system. 

The Swedish Transport Agency’s costs for the administration of the compensation system can amount to a maximum of one percent of the total cost. Every airport that is covered by the system is reimbursed for legitimate costs of aviation security checks of passengers and baggage by The Swedish Transport Agency. 

The level of security costs may vary depending upon changes of each air carrier’s supply and the number of passengers. The compensation system allows the charge to be the same for all passengers, regardless of the airport they are departing from.
