Air Navigation Services are financed in Europe through (en-route & terminal) air navigation charges. Member States establish their tariffs (unit rates) in accordance with rules set at EUROCONTROL and/or at the European Union (in the case of States participating in the Single European Sky). Airspace users are billed on the basis of the services they receive and have to pay the corresponding air navigation charges. Since 1960, EUROCONTROL (the CRCO) has been tasked with billing and recovering en-route charges on behalf of EUROCONTROL States. This service has been extended to terminal services at the request of any States. This common charging system ensures full consistency between the applicable SES Charging Scheme Regulation and EUROCONTROL’s Principles concerning the establishment and collection of air navigation charges.

This training will give you an in-depth knowledge of the establishment of cost bases and the financing of Air Navigation Services (ANS)  in Europe through air navigation charges. It also details the link between ANS charges and the performance scheme of the European Union. The core of the training is based on hands-on practical exercises on how to fill in the reporting tables.
