Season card general terms and conditions 2018

These terms and conditions apply to air airport services provided by Finavia Corporation (hereinafter referred to as “Finavia”) in Finnish airspace and at Finnish airports and to air navigation services provided by ANS Finland. The air navigation and airport services are also governed by Finavia’s and ANS Finland’s current terms and conditions of service.

These terms and conditions of season cards will enter into force on 1 January 2018. Finavia reserves the right to make changes to the terms and conditions.

The landing, air navigation and parking fees for aircraft with a maximum takeoff weight (MTOW) of 2,000 kg may be paid in advance by purchasing a season card for the aircraft. The price of the season card is determined by the MTOW of the aircraft, the time and area of validity of the season card and the card type.

In accordance with Finavia’s terms and conditions of service, sailplanes and powered sailplanes are exempt from the landing and air navigation fees, with the exception of Helsinki Airport.

Each season card applies to one aircraft.

Once the order has been placed, the season card cannot be cancelled. The consumer’s right to cancel is withheld under Chapter 6, section 16 of the Consumer Protection Act.

In the event of a dispute between the consumer and Finavia regarding the service, the matter can be brought to the Consumer Disputes Board via, for instance, the complaint form found on the Board’s website.

Season card types and discount for the transition period

We offer two types of season cards: recreational aviation cards and professional aviation cards.

The professional aviation season card will no longer be available after 1 July 2018. In future, operation-specific prices will apply to professional aviation regardless of aircraft size. The change will balance out pricing in professional and commercial air traffic, and the fees charged will better cover the costs of the operation.

The effects of the change will be cushioned by a four-year transition period to allow more time to adapt for the change. By application, the following discounts on landing, air navigation and parking fees will be granted for aircraft with a maximum take-off weight of 2,000 kg:

1 July 2018–30 June 2019: 80% discount

1 July 2019–30 June 2020: 60% discount

1 July 2020–30 June 2021: 40% discount

1 July 2021–30 June 2022: 20% discount

Season cards and discounts will not apply to Helsinki Airport.

Discounts are granted on the basis of register number as of the application date from the e-mail address [email protected]. The discount cannot be granted retroactively. The discount will be valid for the whole transition period. The application can be made as of 1 April and the decision will become effective on 1 July 2018 at the earliest or on a later application date. A professional aviation season ticket expire on 30 June 2018.

Price example, operation-specific pricing: Aircraft whose maximum take-off weight (MTOW) is over 1,000 kg but less than 2,000 kg lands on an airport with ATS 2 service level. The minimum landing fee is €30 and the air navigation fee €15.44. A 80% discount will be granted on these in the first year, i.e. the landing fee will then be €6 and the air navigation fee €3.09 per landing. Value-added tax will be added to the prices.
