Azerbaijan Airlines and DFS Aviation Services modernise Laçin Airport

At the esteemed Passenger Terminal Expo 2024 in Frankfurt, Farhan Guliyev, Direktor AZANS, and Andreas Poetzsch, Managing Director of DFS Aviation Services GmbH, entered into a contract to further their collaboration.

This signed agreement involves equipping Laçin International Airport with the advanced PHOENIX air traffic control system. This move underscores the dedication of Azerbaijan Airlines (AZAL) to ongoing development and enhancement of service quality.

Under this fruitful partnership, AZANS and DFS Aviation Services are implementing various initiatives. A collaboration of AZANS and the National Aviation Academy of Azerbaijan is working on establishing a training center for air traffic controllers in Azerbaijan, which will be equipped and complemented with training material and standards from DFS Aviation Services.
