Facts & Figures

With Switzerland at the crossroads of international air ways, the airspace managed by skyguide is the most complex and most extensively used in Europe. Nevertheless, as confirmed by the European air traffic control agency Eurocontrol, we have continuously both increased airspace capacity and enhanced the punctuality of the flights we manages and monitor over the past 10 years.

Skyguide is a High-Reliability Organization

Our product is safety. Skyguide was one of the first air navigation services providers to subject its safety culture to a close and careful examination. And in 2016 we conducted our first-ever companywide safety analysis following the international model of Eurocontrol, Europe’s umbrella air navigation services organization. The results confirm that we are on the right track: skyguide’s safety culture is among Europe’s best.

ll in all 96.8% of the flights we handled suffered zero delays. The delays to en-route traffic attributable to skyguide averaged just 4.2 seconds per flight. Our technical systems are highly reliable, too; and we have improved our efficiency some 10% on the Five-Year Plan over the past three years.

 

Partner of Swiss Air Force

Skyguide and the Swiss Air Force celebrated 15 years of integrated civil and military air navigation services in 2016. The two organizations and their personnel have grown steadily together over that time. And today we are joined by a genuine partnership that bears particular fruit in our reliable performance of special joint missions, such as our activities in connection with the annual World Economic Forum in Davos and the establishment of a permanent aerial policing capability for Switzerland.

 

Sustainable solution for ATS services at regional aerodromes

The financing of air traffic services at Switzerland’s Category II airports (such as Bern, Lugano and St Gallen-Altenrhein) is close to a solution. Skyguide has concluded individual contractual agreements with all such regional airports which will ensure the continued provision of these key infrastructural services.

 

Revision 1+ to the Federal Aviation Act

The Swiss National Council debated Revision 1 + to the Federal Aviation Act in its 2016 winter session. One item which is of particular importance to skyguide is that the company should continue to be reimbursed the costs of the air navigation services which it provides in the adjacent airspace areas of neighbouring countries which have been delegated to its control.

 

FABEC audit organisation honoured

IntACT, the FABEC audit organization which skyguide co-founded, has been honoured with the international CANSO Global Safety Achievement Award. This is one example of how we contribute to the successful implementation of the Single European Sky.
