Explanatory Note

(This note is not part of the Regulations)
These Regulations amend the Civil Aviation (Route Charges for Navigation Services) Regulations 1994 as follows:
The exemption from the Regulations for flights made exclusively for the purpose of the instruction or testing of flight crew is restricted to such flights made within the specified airspace of the United Kingdom (regulation 2(a)).
The unit rate in ECUs set out in Schedule 2 of the principal Regulations is reduced in the case of Austria by 3.8% and in the case of the United Kingdom by 5.8%. The unit rate in the case of Turkey is increased by 7.2% (regulation 2(b)).
In consequence of the adjustment to the unit rates of Austria, Turkey and the United Kingdom new transatlantic charges are introduced (regulation 2(c)).
The unit rates in ECUs set out in regulation 2(b) and the amount of the charges in ECUs set out in regulation 2(c) (for transatlantic flights) are calculated by reference to the costs of provision of en-route navigation services in the participating countries in the Eurocontrol charges system, the amount of traffic using each country’s airspace and the relationship of each country’s currency to the ECU over a period agreed by Ministers of the participating countries. The interaction of these elements varies in each country. In calculating the revised charges the average of the exchange rates between the ECU and the currencies of the participating countries obtaining in the month of July 1994 have been used.
