Paper 11 -- Route Charging Policy For A Functional Block Of Airspace (Ceats)

The introduction of the CEATS UACC (Central European Air Traffic Services Upper Area Control Centre) controlling the upper airspace of several central European countries opens the doors for assessing different route charging policy scenarios in order to maximise its potential benefits in terms of efficiency, safety and cost-effectiveness, and minimise the drawbacks. In this study, first we compare three charging scenarios by computing the Unit Rate values to be set by each ANSP located in the CEATS area. Then we analyse the impact that such Unit Rate values may have on the Aircraft Operators flying in the CEATS area. We conclude that, without a compensatory mechanism, the policy of considering different Unit Rates for each ANSP in the area would adversely affect the regional carriers and all the airlines based in the CEATS area since the CEATS Unit Rate turns out to be significantly lower than the Unit Rates of the national ANSPs controlling the lower airspaces.
