Enroute

Every third flight in Europe flies over Germany. Due to its central position in the heart of Europe and the large number of airports within and outside its borders, German airspace is one of the most complex in the world. At peak times, air traffic controllers in Germany handle up to 10,000 flights per day, more than a third of which are overflights. The German air navigation services have handled a high volume of air traffic for over 60 years on a daily basis: safely, punctually and efficiently.

Over the years, DFS has developed its own systems and tools to optimise enroute control. As our customer, you can use our modern simulators and benefit from our experience in optimising airspace structures. Our competencies in this field are the following:

  • Development and delivery of Air traffic management systems (ATM)
  • Implementation of ATM-systems
  • Air traffic flow management (ATFM) systems and processes
  • Management and planning of airspace structures
  • Operational and contingency concepts for control centres
  • Installation of and support for simulators
  • Fast and real-time simulations
