A regional workshop on Airport and Route Facility Management was convened by ICAO in Cairo, Egypt from 21 to 24 November 2005. The workshop was for Contracting States in the Middle East and Eastern and Southern Africa regions. The invitations were open to national civil aviation administrations which might include representatives of autonomous entities (public as well as private) for airports and air navigation services in the States concerned. Some selected international organizations were also invited to the workshop.


These workshops are intended to be informal meetings providing a forum for participants from States to receive advice on ICAO's policy on cost recovery and freely exchange views and information on economic aspects of the operation and management of airports and route facilities (and air navigation services in general). Those participating should come prepared to discuss any problems relating to such aspects as well as possible solutions.


The agenda for the workshop was as follows:

  1. ICAO policy on airport and air navigation services charges
  2. Organizational structures of airports, including commercialization
  3. Airport financial management and airport charges on air traffic
  4. Development and management of non-aeronautical activities
  5. Infrastructure financing
  6. Organizational structures of air navigation services, including international cooperation
  7. Financial management of air navigation services and air navigation services charges

Special attention was given to (1) the revised ICAO policy and guidance in the field of airport and air navigation services economics and management, and (2) new ideas related to the performance of the air navigation system. General information concerning the workshop is available in Arabic, English, French and Russian. Documentation for the Workshop is in Arabic and English and may be accessed following this link.
