DHMİ has successfully been able to keep its unit rate stable over the last five years. DHMİ has used its resources very effectively and efficiently, and has ensured the provision of air navigation services of high quality.

With a view to extend airspace capacity, new R&D studies are conducted continuously. One of our major projects resulting from these studies, is called SMART (Systematic Modernization of ATM resources in Turkey) and aims to increase quality and productivity of DHMİ’s air navigation services. In this framework, the related investments of this project have been made in 2007 and will continue in the next few years.

The actual cost base figure for the year 2007 has been established 2% lower than the estimated 2007 cost base figure (which was 186,346,820 Euros) bringing the total amount to 182,614,714 Euro. The number of Service Units has increased by 3% between 2007F and 2007A, whereas on the contrary the national cost base has decreased by 2%.

While the staff and operational expenditure have been calculated as 77,120 K€ and 50,108 K€, depreciation and interest costs have been determined as 30,184 K€ and 25,202 K€ respectively, the total cost base being 182,615 K€. DHMİ has applied expected operating lives for the calculation of the 2007 actual figures. Depending on the economical stability in recent years, the interest rate has been kept again at the level of 8%.





The increase in service units which has started since 2004 is a positive indicator to show users’ preference to use Turkish Airspace. This trend has increasingly continued in 2007.


“High quality services & lowest unit rate: Turkish Airspace”

In the last half decade, stability of decreasing Unit Rates has successfully been implemented and this situation is clearly shown by the rapid increase of Users’ demand to the Turkish Airspace and its hinterlands.

The performance of DHMİ compared to the performance objectives established in the framework of its business targets has been of a huge success.
