CAR Invites Responses to Draft Decision by 3rd March

The Commission for Aviation Regulation (CAR) has published a Draft Decision on the Interim Review of the 2014 Determination of the Maximum Level of Airport Charges at Dublin Airport and has set a deadline for receipt of responses of 5.00pm on Friday 3rd March 2017.

This paper provides information on the proposed decision and how to respond to the consultation.

The Commission is conducting a consultation on its Draft Decision on the Interim Review of the 2014 Determination of the Maximum Level of Airport Charges at Dublin Airport with regards to the regulatory treatment of the North Runway. It follows the decision (CP2/2015) to conduct an Interim Review of the 2014 Determination to amend the Runway trigger and the decision (CP6/2016) to limit the scope of the review to aligning the remuneration of the North Runway with the timeline of delivery.

The CAR proposes to replace the existing trigger with three triggers that increase the price cap in three stages to remunerate the project. The first adds €0.06 on the year that follows the start of construction of the main project. Once the North Runway is fully operational €0.50 will be added to the price cap. The remaining €0.03 will be added when all aspects of the project are complete, including the house buy-out scheme. All amounts are added to the price cap in the year following the event.

Repro Free: Thursday 21st July, Dublin Airport:
Aer Lingus welcomed a piece of Irish aviation history into its hangar at Dublin airport today as it received a Douglas DC-3 aircraft hailing from the 1940s and 50s and freshly painted in the Aer Lingus livery of that era. The DC-3 was the fifth aircraft type to be operated by Aer Lingus in 1940 and at that time was part of a fleet of just 5, while today’s fleet now stands at 63 aircraft operating more than 100 routes to UK, Europe and North America. The DC-3 aircraft will feature in Bray Air Display and Foynes Air Show this weekend. Pictured are Aer Lingus cabin crew Sarah Jane Bennett and Christina Foley wearing the airline’s 1940s uniform together. Picture Jason Clarke
