Partnership is at the heart of our operation

Skyguide plays an important role within the Swiss and the European aviation network. We help improve performance, service and safety. Partners in the aviation chain include legislators and control bodies at both national and international levels, including the Swiss and other national air forces.


Within Switzerland, we work closely with the following bodies:

  • Federal Office of Civil Aviation (FOCA)  is the regulatory and supervisory authority in Switzerland and also represents it on the international scene. FOCA works closely within its FABEC partners to establish the Single European Sky.
  • Swiss Air Force . Since 2001, skyguide has been providing military air navigation services and operating the air defence and direction center. We help our partner ensure optimum mission effectiveness to guarantee security and sovereignty of Swiss airspace.
  • Aerosuisse is the umbrella organization of the Swiss civil aviation and aerospace industry. It helps shape the aviation legal framework and maintains active contact with the government, parliament, regulatory authorities, business organisations and the media.
  • Airports, main airlines and general aviation partners in Switzerland.

We are an active member of the Functional Airspace Block Europe Central (FABEC) and we work with international organisations and regulators, including:

  • International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) establishes mandatory worldwide operational and technical procedures.
  • Eurocontrol is the Europe-wide organisation responsible for the safety of air navigation, and for developing and coordinating strategies.
  • Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) represents the interests of the air navigation service providers worldwide.
