EGNOS cost-benefit analysis (CBA) for aviation (July 2009)

Executive summary

By enabling Approaches with Vertical Guidance with consequent lower decision heights, EGNOS will significantly reduce the probability of occurrence of Delays, Diversions and Cancellations (DDC).

EGNOS will increase flight safety through the reduction in the number of Controlled Flight Into Terrain (CFIT) occurrences by offering Approaches with Vertical Guidance.

EGNOS will lead to significant cost savings related to both installation and maintenance of traditional ground based navigational aids (navaids).
