Skyguide raises both punctuality and productivity in the first half of 2015 while handling slightly higher traffic volumes

Skyguide, Switzerland’s air navigation service provider (ANSP), managed and monitored 564,377 civil IFR flights in the first six months of 2015, a 1.8% increase on the same period last year. The further rise in first-half air traffic volumes had a slight adverse impact on skyguide’s operational performance, in that the average lengths of the delays incurred were up from the same period in 2014; but only 3.0% of all the flights handled suffered such delays, a new record for the company. The result was also achieved by a very efficient organization: Eurocontrol, the sector’s umbrella body for Europe, again gave Switzerland’s ANSP high marks in productivity terms.
