Additional details about Vector PlanePass

Vector Airport Systems ("Vector") handles operation, billing, and collection of landing fees on behalf of King County International Airport-Boeing Field (BFI) using its PlanePass tool. Landing fees at BFI are based upon arrivals. To view the authorization for Vector to bill on the Airport's behalf, please see the official Authorization to Bill letter. To learn more about the changes to billing and payment, read the letter to airport users.

Payments and Account Management

Vector's self-service web portal allows operators to update contact information, process credit card payments, view account history, request copies of invoices via email or download invoices to Excel, and enroll in electronic invoicing.

To log into the portal, please use the operator ID and invoice number shown on the invoice. Vector accepts credit cards, checks, and ACH/wire payments.

Payment Details

  • Credit Cards: 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 third-party credit card processor, not to Vector or King County. 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 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.
  • ACH/Wire Payments: Please email to get banking details. Remittance information should also be sent to this email address.
