Recommended Practices on Transparency and Consultations with Airlines on Setting Airport Charges
The economic sustainability of the airport industry is dependent on the capacity of airports to recover their aeronautical costs from the users, in line with national legislation and ICAO’s Policies on Charges for Airports and Air Navigation Services in Doc 9082. As such, airport operators are committed to ensuring the right level of transparency when charges are set and to carrying out consultations with aircraft operators in a structured and meaningful way. With the objective of giving airport operators guidance in optimizing their results in effective charges consultation with their airline customers, the ACI Recommended Practices on Transparency and Consultations with Airlines on Setting Airport Charges are meant to be aspirational. They demonstrate the commitment of the airport industry to engage meaningfully with the airlines and build the right level of trust with all stakeholders.
