Philippines Air Navigation Charge - Enroute Charges

Welcome to the skies of Philippines, where the vast expanse above is not only a canvas of endless possibilities but also subject to regulations and charges. When it comes to navigating the Philippines airspace, understanding the air navigation charge of Philippines, especially for overflights, is crucial. Let's delve into what air navigation charge entails and how it is calculated in Philippines 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.

The Calculation Method

In Philippines, the air navigation charge for overflights is calculated using a formula that takes into account the distance flown in Km and a weight factor (W) that is taken from a tabled formula which is determined on the aircraft's maximum take-off weight (MTOW). 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 taken in (Km), and the currency is in USD.

Charge (USD) = Distance flown in Km/100 X the Weight Factor (W)

The Weight Factor (W) is determined from the following tabled formula:

50 - 100


100 - 200


200 - 300


More than 300

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. 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.
