Consultation Process for 2017 Charges
ANAC approved for 2017, in the exact terms proposed by ANA for all ANA network airports, the following regulated charges: landing, parking, hangar, aerodrome opening, regulated handling (passengers handling /check-in desks, baggage handling) as well as CUPPS (Common Use Processing Passenger System), CUSS (Common Use Self-Service) and BRS (Baggage Reconciliation System).
The amounts now approved by the Regulator for the year 2017, included in the tables of regulated charges annexed, will take effect on 09.03.17.
The Regulatory Authority is still analyzing the proposal to update the passenger service, passengers with reduced mobility and security charges.
ANAC – Portuguese Civil Aviation Authority - has provisionally decided to withhold the approval of the Regulated charges structure as from January 1st 2017, set forth by ANA decision on 28 October 2016.
Accordingly, and until ANAC issues the final decision on this matter, ANA will apply the approved regulated charges in force since January 2016 on all ANA airports.
Within the Users consultation process for 2017 charges, launched August 2016 for the Lisbon Group airports, Porto airport and Faro airport, ANA hereby publishes the decision made on 28 October 2016 and the regulated charges tables for Lisbon airport, Azores airports, Madeira airports, Beja civilian terminal, Port airport and Faro airport. (This decision was made based on Decree-law 254/2012, 29.11.2012, with wording from Decree-law 108/2013, 31.07.2013).
Disclosure of financial and operational information regarding 2015
In compliance with that established in the model of economic regulation, specifically in clause 10.1 of the Concession Contracts for the airports of the ANA network, regarding the publication by the concessionaire of the annual audited financial operational information, ANA hereby discloses the following information regarding 2015:
(1) Report on the revenue from regulated charges and terminal passengers, recorded in 2015, in the airports of the ANA network.
(2) Report regarding the audit issued by KPMG & Associados – Sociedade de Revisores Oficiais de Contas, SA.
Regulated Charges adjustment in November and December 2016 – at Lisbon and Porto Airports
The regulatory model of setting regulated charges at ANA, defined by the Portuguese State is based on estimations made more than 6 months in advance of the year when charges are going to be applied.
The estimation made in 2015 in order to establish the charges to be applied in 2016 appears to have been based on a very conservative scenario of traffic growth.
Actually, the estimated traffic growth for 2016 is 8.7% higher than expected for the ANA network airports, which means that the charges are, at present, lower than they should be, with particularly on Lisbon and Porto airports.
Thus, the average regulated charge in relation to the decision published at the end of October 2015 goes from €10,94 to €11,01 (+€0.07) at Lisbon Airport and from €7,84 to €7,89 (+€0,04) at Porto Airport.
This charge adjustment will have a cumulative effect from 1 November 2016 until 31 December 2016 in order to recover part of the regulated revenue not charged due to the variation in the volume of traffic, which, under Contract Concession, will minimize the impact of this situation on customers, avoiding the accumulation of charges adjustments and ensuring the continuity of ongoing investments in order to increase the capacity and the quality of airports.
It should be noted that in 2016 ANA will invest more than 72 million euros in the airport network as to continue to meet the needs of the strong traffic growth.
By the end of July, ANA will launch the consultation process to all Users for the 2017 Charges. This adjustment is specific and limited to the two months of November and December of 2016, having no impact in the charges to be proposed for 2017.
(as of 1 January 2016)
Whereas the Government has not yet published the decree law that regulates the amount of the 2016 security charge at ANA airports, and whereas the Government requested on 30 December 2015 additional information from ANA, we hereby inform our clients that the existing security charge in force of €2.50 per departing passenger will continue to be applied at all ANA airports.
According to the interim decision sent by ANAC (the Portuguese Civil Aviation Authority), the Regulated Charges presented on ANA’s decision published on the company’s website on October 30, 2015, enter into force on January 1st 2016.
