Annual contribution
 
The calculation of a regular member’s annual contribution for any given year is based on the traffic unit of two years previously (effective as 1 January 2012 with the new scale of annual contributions, as approved on 16 June 2011 by the ACI EUROPE General Assembly meeting in Lisbon). This system of traffic-related annual contributions ensures that even the smallest airport can afford to join ACI EUROPE.
 
 
Definition of a traffic unit
 
A traffic unit is each of the following (through passengers in direct transit are not counted as traffic units):
  • an enplaned passenger;
  • a deplaned passenger;
  • 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of enplaned cargo (including mail); and/or
  • 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of deplaned cargo (including mail).
 
To calculate your airport's annual contribution, apply the total traffic units to the ACI EUROPE scale of annual contributions. All ACI EUROPE member airports are required to pay their annual contribution in January of each year. Affiliated regular members pay only 20% of the traffic-related annual contribution compared with a European regular member. Affiliated regular membership of ACI EUROPE is open to enterprises which are already regular members of another ACI region.
