Skyguide achieves high first-half punctuality and productivity with lower traffic volumes

Skyguide handled a total of 574,481 civil air traffic movements in the first six months of 2012, a 2.1% decline on the comparable volume for the same period last year. The actions taken by Switzerland’s air navigation service provider (ANSP) to increase its airspace capacity continue to yield results on punctuality: some 96.7% of all the flights handled were managed without delays. Eurocontrol also gives skyguide a top ranking among Europe’s ANSPs in productivity terms.
