Skyguide adopts electronic coordination to further modernize its Swiss air traffic management services

Skyguide is to introduce “electronic coordination” at its two area control centres in the next few weeks. The new procedure will be adopted at the Area Control Centre (ACC) of Geneva on the night of 4-5 November and at the Zurich ACC on the night of 9-10 December. The new electronic coordination – one of the most important developments in Swiss air traffic management in the last 30 years – marks a further milestone in skyguide’s “Stripless” project to gradually replace the paper strips used to record and pass on flight and aircraft information with electronic solutions. This release also includes a new safety feature (EHS-CLAM) to monitor flying altitudes.
