Workshop on Airport and Air Navigation Services Economics (WANSE)
Vienna, 2 to 4 December 2008
A workshop on the economics of airports and air navigation services was held in Vienna, Austria, from 2 to 4 December 2008. It was attended by a total of 37 participants coming from 13 European States and 4 international organizations.
The issues discussed focussed mainly on the results of the Conference on the Economics of Airports and Air Navigation Services
(CEANS), held in September 2008 in Montreal, and the subsequent changes brought to ICAO’s Policies on Charges for Airports and Air Navigation Services
, Eight edition). More specific aspects of the policies on charges and related guidance material were also discussed for both airports and air navigation services.
Items attracting particular interest among the participants were related to economic oversight, performance measuring and consultations with users. Implementation of ICAO’s policies on charges was a subject that was also extensively discussed, as well as introductory charges discounts and incentives and the collection of charges, all areas where a need for expanded guidance was identified.
