Providing air traffic services is an aggregated activity, which is performed by professionally expert personnel by means of state-of-the-art technology. Air traffic control service is the executive part of this activity, and it is provided with the objective of preventing collisions between individual aircraft, between aircraft and obstacles on the manoeuvring area, and for maintaining a fast and orderly flow of air traffic. This is how the most important product of our company, which is the safety of air traffic, is produced.
In correspondence with legal rules and regulations, and international civil aviation standards, we provide public aeronautical services to the users of Czech airspace at the airports of Prague-Ruzyně, Brno-Tuřany, Ostrava-Mošnov and Karlovy Vary.
