LFV streamlines Nordic air traffic services

Published: 09 March 2021 08:08

As of 15 February, LFV provides new technical services to air navigation service providers in Iceland (Isavia) and Denmark (Naviair). These services streamline their production of flight information and are the result of a successful Nordic collaboration.

‘This is a great success for us. We have created a service that complies with EU regulatory requirements and we have initiated a collaboration with our Nordic colleagues that resulted in this unique offer of a solution that includes both technology, maintenance, training, and support’, says LFV's Director General Ann Persson Grivas.
The EU requires air navigation service providers to share costs and risks. LFV has achieved the objective through a modern system architecture and coordination between several different stakeholders. The Italian company IDS (Ingegneria Dei Sistemi) has created the software, which LFV then develops and resells according to the established business model SaaS – Software as a Service.
