Amazon Athena now supports querying data in Amazon S3 Requester Pays buckets.  

With this release, Athena workgroup administrators can configure workgroup settings to allow members to reference S3 Requester Pays buckets in queries. Once configured, the requester, instead of the bucket owner, pays for the Amazon S3 request and data transfer costs associated with the query. 

For information about how to configure this setting for your workgroup, Create a Workgroup in the Amazon Athena User Guide. For more information about Requester Pays buckets, see Requester Pays Buckets in the Amazon Simple Storage Service Developer Guide.
