Heathrow says the charges, which need to be approved by the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA), will help pay for £3 billion of investment, including the opening of the new Terminal 2 next year.
Airport bosses said that errors in previous passenger forecasts meant that Heathrow had lost out on around £650 million of charges over the last five years.
The CAA had based the previous level of charges on estimates that Heathrow would handle 78 million passengers a year by 2013, but the airport is only handling around 70 million.
