Study into Air Navigation Services to be opened to Competition in Norway: Part 1
As part of a broader political aim to improve the efficiency of the transport sector, the Government of Norway has decided that ANS (Air Navigation Services) provision at state-owned airports should be opened to competition. The objective is to achieve improved cost effectiveness of ANS, whilst at least maintaining current safety, security, national defence standards and service delivery quality. This two-part study has been launched to investigate the options. This first part identifies which services are best suited to competition and how the competition should be phased in. The second part, to be documented separately, will determine the conditions precedent to facilitate this competition. The scope of this study includes the following Air Navigation Services: approach control (“APP”); aerodrome control (“TWR”); Aerodrome Flight Information Services (“AFIS”); Aeronautical Information Services (“AIS”); meteorological services (“MET”); and communications, navigation and surveillance services (“CNS”). The primary focus however, is on approach and aerodrome Air Traffic Control (ATC) services.
