Special reserve (optional)

21 janvier 2014 (mis à jour le 3 mai 2016)

From 2013, 3% of the total of allowances for the aviation sector are set aside in a special reserve for operators :

  • who start performing an aviation activity after 2010 ("new entrants"), or
  • whose tonne-kilometre data increases by an average of more than
    18 % annually between 2010 and 2014, amounting to more than 93.88% cumulated from 2010 to 2014 ("fast-growing" operators).

The free allowances "new entrants" can get from this special reserve are proportional to the 2014 tonne-kilometre data they reported. For "fast-growing" operators, only the tonnes-kilometre data reported over the 18% annual growth limit are taken into account to calculate the free allowances they can get from the special reserve.

The aircraft operators who planned to benefit from the special reserve had until June 30, 2015 to submit their applications. The allowances from the special reserve will be distributed from 2017 to 2020.
