Business goals

Huge interest for ACR in Europe

Leading Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) in Europe shows great interest for ACR.

ACR is certified under the Single European Sky regulations. This means that we can deliver air navigation services within the EU.

When the home market opened up for free competition after a 2010 parliamentary decision and after winning our first three-ATS procurement, industrial stakeholders began to show interest. The international attention received after being assigned the five ATS units in April 2013 indicates a good grade for ACR.

The interest for ACR has increased considerably. As a young company we prove that we can compete with the large providers offer airport owners very cost-effective air traffic control services.

ACR's viewpoint is that future suppliers (ANSP) must be able to offer the market both customized, safe, transparent and cost-effective air traffic control services.
