According to El Diario, the Spanish Minister of Public Works, Iñigo de la Serna, announced last week that Enaire has finalized a plan through which the en-route tariff paid by airlines for Air Navigation Services, will decrease 11.5% between 2018 and 2020.
During the World ATM Congress held in Madrid, the Minister highlighted that the en-route charges have been frozen since 2012 and the expected decreases will be 3% in 2018, 4% in 2019 and 5% in 2020.
This reduction of the en-route tariffs will signify 184 million euros of savings for the airlines, De la Serna said.
This new strategic plan is “an important stimulus” for Enaire, which “could become the most competitive company” in Europe.
The Minister also announced that Spain will recommend that Carmen Librero, currently the General Secretary of Transport, become the new Eurocontrol General Director.
