En-route Charging Zone
A route charge is levied for each flight performed in the EUROCONTROL airspace. The EUROCONTROL airspace is divided into route charging zones as defined by the Member States.
The EUROCONTROL route charge takes account of three basic elements:
- The distance factor (for each charging zone);
- The aircraft weight factor; and
- The unit rate of charge (for each charging zone).
The Unit Rate of charge is established at the beginning of the year and, normally, remains valid for a calendar year.
