Summary
"Concerns have been expressed in recent years about the performance of the European ATM network. Notwithstanding the emergence of cross-border service provision -- Maastricht, and, for the future, CEATS and NUAC -- the structure of provision continues to be heavily influenced by existing national boundaries. The precise effect of the resulting fragmentation on the overall performance of the network remains a matter of dispute, but it is highly unlikely that an efficient structure of provision would correlate closely with national boundaries determined by political history. The Single European Sky initiative provides an opportunity to address and to eliminate some of the barriers standing in the way of the evolution of the European ATM network toward more efficient structures and more effective performance. This Report is addressed to one part of the initiative, which is focused on issues of charging for service provision and of regulation of charging. To facilitate discussion of charging options, we introduce a distinction between operational airspace blocks (OABs) and airspace charging blocks (ACBs). The former refer to blocks of airspace that are controlled by a single provider or a joint venture of providers. Following implementation of the Single European Sky regulations, functional airspace blocks (FABs), will have this characteristic. In contrast, an ACB is a block of airspace in which en-route charges are either identical or are set in a fully co-ordinated way, whether by a single service provider or by means of an agreement among the relevant service providers. OABs and ACBs may or may not coincide. For example, a two or more adjacent ANSPs may agree to set a common unit charge per service unit whilst each retains control of its own national airspace."
