Recent complaints about excessive increases in charges levied by the airports and air navigation authorities have been counteracted by figures published by the ICAO which suggest that the unit cost of airport charges to airlines has recently become static, and in real terms has even declined. The figures are devoted exclusively to landing and departure fees; they do not change of navigation sevices, or en-route charges. The distinction between the two is an important one, for the en-route charge is not as a rule the concern for the airport authority. IATA's concern relates to en-route charges, and it appears that the association would make a better case for its members were it to distinguish them more clearly from landing fees.
