The General Manager of Air Navigation, Mr. Ignacio González, has announced that the en-route charge could be increased in 2014.
In a meeting held with the media, Ignacio Gonzalez explained that the en-route charge in Spain could increase in 2014, after a couple of years of being frozen. According to Gonzalez, it is too early to confirm if this will happen. A lot of work still has to be done and many variables need to be analyzed before taking this decision. It will depend on whether the traffic is growing or not, and whether Air Navigation can continue to reduce the expenses.
Gonzalez also has noted that air traffic in Spain has fallen to levels of 2005, in particular Madrid Barajas airport has fallen to levels of 2001.
According to data provided, the en-route charge in Spain is the second lowest out of the five major European countries.
