Changes in economic cost-effectiveness (37 ANSPs)

The analysis shows the trend of the unit economic costs between 2012 and 2017 at Pan-European level for a consistent sample of 37 ANSPs for which data for a time-series analysis was available. The left-hand side shows the changes in unit economic costs, while the right-hand side provides complementary information on the year-on-year changes in ATM/CNS provision costs, composite flight-hours and unit costs of ATFM delays.
The economic cost-effectiveness indicator at Pan-European level amounts to €480 per composite flight-hour in 2017, and, on average, ATFM delays represent 16% of the total economic costs.

Economic gate-to-gate cost effectiveness (2016)

In 2017 unit economic costs ranged from €904 for LVNL to €221 for MATS, a factor of more than four.
More information on exchange rates variations and their impact on unit costs is provided in the ACE Benchmarking Reports.
