Air passengers are to be charged an extra £3 every time they fly out of Norwich in a scheme to fund new facilities at the airport.
The money raised will be spent on improving facilities
The Airport Development Fee (ADF) will be used to make improvements to the runway and to improve check-in areas, shops, parking and customer services.
The charge, which comes into force on 2 April, will be payable at departure from special ticket machines.
Tickets will cost £3 for adults and £1 for children aged between two and 15.
Children under two will fly for free.
The ticketing system will be managed by car park operator NCP.
The news of the fee comes as the airport announced a five-year, £18m investment package.
Managing director Richard Jenner said: "This charge allows us to make a step change at Norwich in the provision of facilities for both airlines and passengers.
"Without this small charge made to every passenger it simply would not be possible for us to put this level of investment into the airport.
"The growth provided by the ADF investment will double the number of jobs created by Norwich International within the next five years as well as providing more choice, better value and greater comfort to passengers," he said.
