A regional workshop on Airport and Route Facility Management was convened by ICAO in Nairobi, Kenya from 27 to 31 May 2002. The workshop was for Contracting States in Eastern and Southern Africa. The invitations were open to national civil aviation administrations which included 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 charges
  2. Organizational structures of airports, including commercialization
  3. Airport financial management
  4. Airport charges on air traffic and their collection
  5. Development and management of non-aeronautical activities
  6. Infrastructure financing
  7. ICAO policy on air navigation services charges
  8. Organizational structures of air navigation services, including international cooperation
  9. Financial management of air navigation services
  10. Air navigation services charges and their collection


Special attention was given to the implementation of recommendations of the Conference on the Economics of Airports and Air Navigation Services (ANSConf 2000), held in Montreal 19 to 28 June 2000, including privatization and cooperative ventures as well as general cost recovery issues. Details about the workshop may be found in the Invitation Letter (English, and French) to States and WARFM (Nairobi) - WP/1.
