DFS Aviation Services awarded with a consultancy project on possible implementation of Remote Tower technology for Lithuania

A team of Air Traffic Management experts from DFS Group will provide consulting services to Oro Navigacija to develop a feasibility study, determine the scope and requirements of the solution, develop a cost-benefit analysis, and draft the future concepts.

Oro Navigacija will use the results of the feasibility study for long-term strategic orientation.
