Decision ID: 001527

In February 2004 the 1992 Fund Executive Committee reconsidered a claim by the Chambre de Commerce et d’Industry of Morbihan (CCI), which operated the airport of Lorient Lann Bihoué, for reduction in revenue from airport taxes in 2000. It was noted that in December 2003 the CCI had submitted further data, including records of the number of flights and passengers using the airport in 2001 and 2002, and that in the light of the additional data, and after reassessing the claim on the basis of the number of passenger using the airport, as opposed to the occupancy of flights, the Director was of the view that the claim was admissible. The Committee decided to invite the Director to carry out a further study of the claim, if possible using data such as passenger records for the years 2002 and 2003, and to present his findings to the Committee at its May 2004 session so as to enable it to reconsider the claim. The Committee noted that until it had reconsidered the claim the Fund would have to oppose it in the court proceedings.
