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

Skyguide handled a total of 552,988 civil air traffic flights in the first six months of 2013, a 3.7% decline on the comparable volume for the same period last year. The weak traffic volumes and the actions taken by Switzerland’s air navigation service provider (ANSP) to increase its airspace capacity continue to yield results on punctuality: some 96.4% of all the flights handled were managed without delays. Eurocontrol also gives skyguide a top ranking among Europe’s ANSPs in productivity terms.
