Airline account is about to run dry: Jack Brooks Regional Airport (KBPT), Beaumont/Port Arthur, Texas

After more than 18 months of commercial air service from American Airlines at the Jack Brooks Regional Airport under its wings, backed by a minimum revenue guarantee of almost $1.5 million collected mostly from Jefferson County, the city of Beaumont and other local taxing entities, less than $24,000 remains in the account that helps American avoid losses on its flights.

RDU Airport confirms it received a certificate of insurance from Uber – but says that’s not the only holdup in ceasing a conflict that’s become increasingly dicey over the past few weeks. Nor is it that $125 permit fee, which is required for ground transportation operating at RDU.

Included in the permitting process is a requirement for drivers to use an airport-installed Automatic Vehicle Identification transponder – that tracks and charges a driver for trips to the airport.


Without it, Uber and ride-share companies like it become the only commercial transportation options at RDU not paying that fee.
