ERDF Funds of the Europen Union
ENAIRE helps to achieve a balance between development levels in the different regions through co-funding received from the ERDF.
ERDF (European Regional Development Fund)
According to the social integration and territorial structuring objectives of the Ministry of Public Works' Strategic Infrastructure and Transport Plan (P.E.I.T.), Aena contributes to the objective of balancing development levels in the different regions and territories using the cofunding obtained from the ERDF, through investments in Spanish Airports.
In the 2007-2013 period, Aena is taking part in seven ERDF Integrated Operational Programmes:
- Convergence Objective: Andalusia, Extremadura and Galicia,
- Regions that are no longer part of the convergence objective for statistical reasons (Phasing-out objective): Murcia
- Regions which would no longer be a part of Objective 1 for natural reasons, i.e. due to exceeding 75% of the average gross domestic product of the EU-25 (Phasing-in objective): Castile and Leon, the Canary Islands and Valencia.
In the 2000-2006 period, Aena took part in six ERDF Integrated Operational Programmes in Objective 1 regions: Andalusia, the Canary Islands, Galicia, Melilla, Murcia and Valencia.
