Vector manages the billing and payments for the Landing Fee Program (or “Program”) on behalf of the Laredo International Airport. The Landing Fee Program assesses a fee based upon an aircraft’s arrival. The fee is not an arrival related fee.  Vector’s system and technologies are able to provide the exact data for the Program. To view the Airport’s authorization for Vector to bill on the Airport’s behalf, please go to our official Authorization to Bill letter which can be found here AUTHORIZATION TO BILL LETTER.

4) Enroll in electronic invoicing

5) View account history

 Payment Details:

·        Credit Cards Accepted: American Express, Visa, MasterCard, and Discover are accepted. There is a service provider processing fee of 3% of the total amount paid. This surcharge fee goes directly to the 3rd party credit card processor, not to Vector. This surcharge does not exceed the amount charged to Vector by the credit card processor. 

·        Vector does not keep credit card information on file and does not accept credit card information via email or fax.

·        While credit card surcharges charged by “merchants”, “retailers”, or “sellers” are not allowed in some states, they are allowed when government and public entities charge them for the collection of taxes or fees (i.e., landing fees). Vector is not a “merchant”, “retailer”, or “seller” but an “agent” of the government entities (i.e., cities, towns, public authorities, et al) that operate the airports for which Vector collects landing fees and other aircraft operating fees. As such, the prohibition on charging credit card surcharges does not apply to the transaction.


·        Checks can be mailed to the remittance address shown in the upper left corner of the Vector invoice and MUST include the Invoice Number or Operator ID. Since Vector handles the billing for multiple airports, please make sure your payment is mailed to the airport payment address shown on the invoice. Vector’s online payment portal allows you to login and view any invoice issued by Vector.


·         EFT/Wire Payments – Please email to get banking details. Remittance information should also be sent to this email address.

Contact Vector: For payment or billing inquiries, Vector can be reached at 888-588-0028 (X700 or Option 1) or by email at Their office hours are Monday through Friday 9 am to 5pm EST with most federal holidays observed as well as Christmas Eve and the Friday after Thanksgiving.
