 DFS Aviation Services takes over air traffic control services at Braunschweig 9 On 01 January 2023, DFS Aviation Services (DAS) took over the tower services in Braunschweig- Wolfsburg Airport as a certified air navigation service provider, replacing the previous provider, Austro Control. Since 01.01.2023, air traffic control services at Braunschweig-Wolfsburg Airport have been provided by the certified air navigation service provider DFS Aviation Services GmbH (DAS). This marks the successful completion of the first step in the project “Commissioning and Operation of a Remote Tower Control Centre (RTC Centre Lower Saxony) at the Braunschweig site”. The aim is to have a remote tower control centre (RTC centre) in operation at the Braunschweig site by mid-2024, from which air traffic control services for the two airports, Braunschweig- Wolfsburg and Emden, will be safely provided via a so-called exterior view (ASE). Michael Schwarz, Managing Director of Braunschweig-Wolfsburg Airport, is confident: “With DFS Aviation Services, we have a reliable and forward-looking air traffic control services partner at our side.” “We are pleased that we can already take a big step towards the RTC centre by taking over the air traffic control services in 2023”, says Andreas Pötzsch, Managing Director of DAS. For the construction of the RTC Centre at Braunschweig-Wolfsburg Airport, DAS will cooperate with FREQUENTIS DFS AEROSENSE, a joint venture with the technology provider Frequentis, and ESPA GmbH, an air traffic control provider for CNS technology. | REMOTE & DIGITAL TOWERS | NEWS Braunschweig-Wolfsburg-Aiport ©DAS |
