Flight information at the pilot's service

Our Flight Information Service (FIS) provides you with information and advice for your safe and expedient flying.


To best assist you, let us know if you plan to change your route due to bad weather, navigational concerns or uncertainties concerning airspace.


We offer you the following real-time services:

  • Weather information (METAR, GAFOR, SIGMET, AIRMET, wind information and messages from other pilots)
  • Traffic information
  • Information on status of navigational aids and airfields
  • Information on activity in dangerous and restricted areas (D and R areas)
  • Information on activity at HX airfields like Emmen, Dübendorf and Payerne
  • On-demand activation and closing of flight plans
  • Assistance in case of navigation problems
  • Coordination of flights through airspace "C" on request
  • Radio and transponder testing.

FIS is provided by our Flight Information Centers (FIC) located in the area control centers of Geneva and Zurich. We use the following two frequencies:

  • Geneva: 126 350 (French, English)
  • Zurich: 124.7 (German, English)

FIS is not a substitute for a comprehensive briefing nor the pilot's responsibility for route planning in accordance with the airspace and DABS activities.
