Pakistan Air Navigation Charge - Enroute Charges

When it comes to navigating Pakistan airspace, understanding the air navigation charge of Pakistan, especially for overflights, is crucial. Let's delve into what air navigation charge entails and how it is calculated in Pakistan based on specific parameters.


What is Air Navigation Charge?


Navigating the Airspace


Air Navigation Charge, often referred to as enroute charge, is a fee levied by a country for the use of its airspace by aircraft. This fee contributes to the maintenance and management of the airspace, ensuring safe and efficient air travel. The charges can vary from one country to another, and they are typically based on factors such as aircraft type, maximum take-off weight (MTOW), distance flown, and the specific charging method employed by the country.


Pakistan's Air Navigation Charge


The Calculation Method


In Pakistan, the air navigation charge for overflights is calculated using a tabled formula that takes into account the aircraft's maximum take-off weight (MTOW) and the distance flown. The calculation falls under the third category of VarnaJet's method of Air Navigation Charge calculation. The MTOW is taken in (Tonne), the distance is in (km), and the currency is in USD.


The tabled formula is as follows:

MTOW (tonnes)

Charge (USD per km)

5 To 40

0.44

More than 40 up to 120

0.58

More than 120 up to 250

0.88

More than 250 up to 350

1.00

​More than 350 up to 450

1.14

More than 450

1.30

  • The distance is calculated based on the length of the flight plan route.


Setting a New Standard


A Different Approach


At VarnaJet, our commitment to transparency and integrity extends to every aspect of our services, including the handling of Air Navigation Fees and CAA Processing Fees. In every country, the CAA or designated organizations like IATA, EUROCONTROL, ASECNA, or COCESNA are responsible for sending air navigation charges. The accountable entity for receiving and processing these charges varies depending on the country or the event, it could be the Airline, the flight operator directly or the authorized applicant (The case of Pakistan).


Unlike some service providers who may charge these fees without providing supporting documentation and proof of payment to the respective Civil Aviation Authorities (CAA), we take a different approach. We understand the potential pitfalls of such practices, which can lead to future complications, blacklisting the Airline, and even permit rejections. Therefore, we never charge Air Navigation Fees or CAA Prosessing Fees without ensuring that they are backed by concrete documentation and verified proof of payment. This not only safeguards our clients from future permit issues but also exemplifies our dedication to conducting business with the highest standards of professionalism and trustworthiness.


With VarnaJet, you can be confident that your Air Navigation Fees and CAA Processing Fees are handled securely and in full compliance with regulatory requirements, ensuring the smooth operation of your flights without unwelcome surprises down the line.
