Towards a
ATS/ATC market

Freedom of choice – no flight safety risks – procurements resulting in significantly lower production costs

Airlines and airports require cost-effective suppliers. Air traffic services is costly

The EU supports and regulates a competitive market

Competition is also an incitament for state-owned companies to develop

A deregulated market creates greater freedom of movement for both companies and staff

Competition drives efficiency: example from Sweden

Air traffic management costs reduced by 30-40% for Swedish airports.

Potential for more competitive airports:

ATM costs estimated to 4-6% of an airline’s cost base (3rd highest cost item)

ATM costs 20–50% of airports cost base

Competition not contrary to safety

All providers must comply with EU legislation, targeting appropriate safety measures 

Competition replaces the need for regulation
