My monthly cost for 3 of my terminals in Abu Dhabi, Dubai and Sharjah are really different.

 

Abu Dhabi: 181,206
Dubai: 617,946
Sharjah: 84,330

Is this a glitch or is there a reason?

EDIT: All 3 airports have the same number of gates.

Gate leasing fees, in dollars, are 1% of the annual passengers through that airport. When you build terminals, the fee structure is much more complicated; you get a discount the more gates you build.

The significant difference in monthly costs for your terminals in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah may not be a glitch but could be due to various factors. Actually, I don't know the specific factors.

Correct.

 

 

When you build terminals, the fee structure is much more complicated; you get a discount the more gates you build.

 

The first part of the two formulae below is fixed so the more gates you build/add the average cost per gate reduces.

Build: 83 x the base lease + 8 x the base cost x total number of gates

Extend: 16.67 x the base lease + 8 x the base cost x additional gates

The significant cost differences between your three terminals in Abu Dhabi, Dubai, and Sharjah could be attributed to several factors. 
1. Size and Capacity: 
2. Location and Demand: The location and demand for air travel in each city can impact costs. Dubai, being a major global hub with high passenger traffic, might have higher expenses due to increased demand and infrastructure requirements.
3. Airport Fees and Regulations: The fees imposed by airport authorities and local regulations can vary among different locations. These fees can include landing fees, security charges, and other operational expenses set by the respective airport authorities.
4. Facilities and Services: Differences in the quality and extent of facilities and services provided at each terminal can impact operating costs. Terminals offering more amenities and services may have higher expenses to maintain and operate those facilities.
5. Airlines and Contracts: The contracts and agreements between airlines and airport authorities can also influence costs. Airlines might negotiate different terms and conditions, including fees and charges, based on their operations and requirements.                                                                Drift Boss

this tends to be true irl too, where large airports cost more to operate at then small airports (although not at the level shown ingame, where you find $20 airports and $800000 airports.)

If you're a large enough airline you might find some airports willing to pay you to operate there. Conversely, gate slots at slot limited hubs like LHR would go for far more than a measly 800k/month for 50 slots. Probably. Idk, I don't own an airline irl (but hey if anyone happens to have a few million dollars lying around...)

In AE the only thing that matters is the game's view of annual passengers.
