6 Incentivise the Release of Underused CAS

The charging structure for terminal airspace at airports is based on the number of controllers employed rather than on the volume of CAS allocated. This tends to incentivise ANSPs to maintain as much CAS as possible to run their operation with the minimum of staff. There is no incentive to give up any CAS and this needs to be corrected by a change to a system whereby the volume of airspace managed is directly proportional to charges for its use.
