Nav Canada restores original user fees

 - May 27, 2008, 10:36 AM

The temporary reduction in navigation and ATC user charges in Canada came to an end on December 31 in one of several steps Nav Canada is taking to stem a potential revenue shortfall resulting from reduced flight operations since September 11. This action will return user fees to the base levels established in September 1999 and will effectively lead to a 6-percent average increase in the costs of ATC and navigation services, effective January 1.
