This collaboration comes at a crucial time considering that already in 2015 LFV and Saab were worldwide the first undertaking to launch Remote Tower Services. With the extension of LFV’s Remote Tower Center in February 2017, LFV can remotely control three additional airports from Sundsvall. During this spring, two airports will be connected and remotely controlled from Sundsvall.
The German air navigation service provider, DFS Deutsche Flugsicherung, has chosen Frequentis to equip Saarbrücken Airport with its innovative remote tower solution. The go-live is planned for 2017, with the airports in Erfurt and Dresden to follow. All three airports will be operated remotely from a remote tower center located at Leipzig Tower. Main goal of DFS is to centralize multiple tower operations in this single remote tower center and to maximize the efficient use of the tower controllers.
