Revenues

The largest portion of the Metropolitan Airports Commission's (MAC) revenues, 47 percent, come from concessions. Airline rates and charges generate 34 percent of the MAC's revenues. The other 19 percent comes from ground rental, lease rental, tenant utilities payments, general aviation and reliever airport fees, and miscellaneous sources.

The MAC receives no money from the State of Minnesota's general operating budget.
