The situation in air traffic flows and collection of air navigation charges (ANC) has changed since February 24, 2022, when Russia invaded Ukraine, especially in countries bordering or located close to conflict zone, also Riga Flight Information Region (FIR).

The aim of this research is to analyze flight parameters, which affect a number of ANC collected by air navigation service provider (ANSP) SJSC “Latvijas Gaisa Satiksme”. Using the results, it would be possible to state market tendencies in Riga FIR caused by changes in geopolitical situation, and suggest what issues should be taken into account in initial and continuation training of air traffic controllers so that changes in air traffic flow would not affect level of safety in the ANSP.
