Summary from Exploitation Delegation Agreement

The priority of the activity will be implementation in regional, business (corporate) aviation, general aviation (training, emergency services) and rotorcraft, considered the main aviation market segments for EGNOS and those maximizing public benefits. The result will be a wide scale operational implementation of the EGNOS based approached throughout European airports and airspace users.
