Our joint ambition is to deliver improved operational performance and increased cost
efficiency through the introduction of a common:

Concept of operations

based on SESAR, incluiding 4D-trajectory management


aligned with FABS and based on common airspace types.

System architecture

that features improved interoperability via Flight Objects and SWIM.

ATS system

with interchangeable ATS Components supported by open standards.

Working together to generate service alignment and cost efficiencies


iTEC will manage the air space under responsibility of 7 different ANSPs

Over 7 million
flights a year

18 control

It will support flights in some of the most complex airspace in Europe

Founding Members

DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung GmbH: ensures the safe and punctual flow of air traffic over Germany. Around 2,000 air traffic controllers guide up to 10,000 flights in German airspace every day, about three million movements every year. This makes Germany the country with the highest traffic volume in Europe. The company operates control centres in Langen, Bremen, Karlsruhe and Munich as well as control towers at 16 international airports in Germany.

ENAIRE is Spain’s leader with a global vision in the provision of air navigation services and the fourth largest provider of air traffic services in Europe. It manages 2 million flights every year within a large airspace of more than 2 million km2 from five area control centres and 22 control towers. The traffic managed by ENAIRE transports more than 230 million people annually.

NATS: handling 2.3m flights in FY 2015/16 covering the UK and eastern North Atlantic, NATS provides air traffic control from two centres including Prestwick, with the largest area of responsibility in Europe and Swanwick, responsible for London Terminal Control, some of the busiest airspace in the world.

Technology partner

Indra is the leading global supplier of air traffic management solutions that has deployed its systems in over 4,000 facilities in 160 countries.

New Members

LVNL Air Traffic Control the Netherlands (LVNL) provides air navigation services for Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, three regional airports and en-route. Each year our high professional Air Traffic Controllers handle more than 560,000 flights safely and efficiently.

AVINOR is responsible for the 46 state-owned airports and air navigation services for civilian and military aviation in Norway. This network links Norway together - and links Norway to the world.

ORO NAVIGACIJA provides air navigation services in Lithuanian airspace offering its users ATM, CNS as well as AIS services. It operates one combined En-route/TMA control centre at Vilnius, 3 TMA control centres at Lithuania’s international airports, each year providing efficient services to almost 230 000 movements and maintaining 0 min/flight delays level.

PANSA manages the 6th largest airspace in Europe, operating around 700,000 IFR flight movements per year, 15 airport control towers, 4 approach centres and 1 area control centre, structuring the Eastern out-of-area traffic.
