GEN 4.2 AIR NAVIGATION SERVICES CHARGES

 

GEN 4.2.1 Terminal Navigation Charge

The cost of terminal navigation services (approach services) for Keflavik International Airport is paid for by its users with this Terminal Navigation Charge (TNC).
The TNC charge is calculated based on a unit rate and MTOW for each aircraft landing at Keflavik International Airport. If the aircraft has a variable maximum take-off weight or several registered maximum take-off weights, only the highest registered MTOW will be considered.
TNC = unit rate * (MTOW/50) 0.7
Invoices for the terminal navigation charge will be issued by Isavia ANS ehf. Please contact innheimta@isavia.is for inquiries about invoices.

GEN 4.2.2 En-route Air Navigation Charge in Domestic Area

Isavia ANS ehf. provides en-route services for all domestic flights, as well as all flights to and from Iceland. The charging area for international flights to and from Iceland is defined as the area between 220 and 20 km distance to or from the departure or arrival airport.  
 
The operating cost for the services is to be fully covered by its users. As the en-route services in the domestic area are provided jointly with en-route services provided in the international area, the largest part of the cost base for this charge is common with that of the international en-route services. Cost is divided between the two cost bases as prescribed in Annex III in the “Agreement on the Joint Financing of Certain Air Navigation Services in Iceland” (ICAO Doc. 9586-JS/682). Additionally, operating costs of en-route beacons, only used for domestic traffic, is included in the cost base for the domestic charge.
The en-route charge is levied for each flight performed in the Icelandic domestic area.  
The charge is determined by the following formula:
unit rate x distance x weight factor
Distance: Distance in domestic area, excluding approach area, divided by 100 the number of kilometers flown in the great circle distance between the entry and the exit point of the domestic area, according to the latest known flight plan filed by the aircraft concerned for air traffic flow purposes. The distance is reduced by 20 kilometers for each take-off from and for each landing in an airport in the domestic area.  
 
Weight factor: The weight factor is determined by dividing, by fifty, the Maximum Take-Off Weight (MTOW) of the aircraft (in metric tons) and subsequently taking the square root of the result. If the aircraft has a variable maximum take-off weight or several registered maximum take-off weights, only the highest registered MTOW will be considered. 
 
Invoices for the en-route air navigation charge in domestic area will be issued by Isavia ANS ehf. Please contact innheimta@isavia.is for inquiries about invoices.

GEN 4.2.3 International Route Air Navigation Charges

In accordance with a decision of the ICAO Council, all civil aircraft crossing the North-Atlantic north of 45°N are charged for the use of facilities and services provided by both Iceland and Denmark under the “Agreement on the Joint Financing of Certain Air Navigation Services in Iceland” (ICAO Doc. 9586-JS/682) and the “Agreement on the Joint Financing of Certain Air Navigation Services in Greenland” (ICAO Doc. 9585-JS/681). 
The charge for this service is split into two parts:   
 
  1. A charge per crossing.
  2. A charge based on distance flown in the Reykjavik and Nuuk FIR´s.  This charge is equal to the product of the distance factor (d) and the unit rate (t):
    Distance based charge = d x t
The United Kingdom collects these route charges on behalf of Iceland and Denmark. The charges are levied in pounds Sterling (GBP).
