Law 18/2014, of 15 October, establishes a new framework for airport regulation and supervision to guarantee the general interest. The Airport Regulation Document (DORA in Spanish), is the basic instrument for defining the minimum conditions necessary for guaranteeing the accessibility, adequacy and suitability of airport infrastructure and the adequate provision of basic airport services to the Aena airport network, all established in five-year periods.
This aim of this stable regulatory framework, adapted to the community regulations, and the European environment, is to guarantee, for reasons of general interest, the mobility of citizens and economic, social and territorial cohesion, ensuring the accessibility and capacity of airport infrastructure, economic sustainability, as well as the adequate provision of basic airport services, in terms of quality, regularity and safety.
Ineco provides technical support to the Directorate General of Civil Aviation in the development of methods and procedures for the effective creation of the Airport Regulation Document (DORA). This involves the analysis of information provided by Aena S.A. and the drafting and processing of the document itself.
The approval of the document is expected in the last quarter of 2016, as regards the defining of the new conditions for the 2017-2021 period.
