The special financing for air transportation is an instrument that allows the Confederation to provide financial support for measures that concern national aviation. By granting financial assistance, the special financing for air transportation aims to limit the impact of air traffic on the environment, strengthen defences against unlawful acts against aviation (security) and promote a high level of technical safety in air travel. The Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA) has between CHF 45 and 49 million available annually for this purpose, depending on mineral oil tax and surtax receipts.
