“Azeraeronavigation”, announces the deployment of transformative Air Traffic Control (ATC) air/ground communications services Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport.

“Azeraeronavigation” Air Traffic Department (AZANS) has completed the implementation of a suite of technical air/ground (A/G) datalink communications services for ATC towers, airlines and airspace users at Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport in Azerbaijan.

The joint Project of AZANS and SITAONAIR will increase safety, sustainability and operational efficiency at Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport, and the upper Azerbaijan airspace, by enabling air traffic controllers and pilots to exchange messages in digital format.

The provided pre-Future Air Navigation Service (pre-FANS) comprising Datalink Departure Clearance (DCL), Datalink Automatic Terminal Information Service (D-ATIS) and Datalink Meteorological Information for Aircraft in Flight (D-VOLMET) air/ground communications services at the airport will allow the transmission of meteorological data and other important aeronautical information on board of aircraft. Pre-FANS will advance Baku Heydar Aliyev International Airport air navigation operations and safety, with clear digital messaging that is more consistent and dependable than voice, while reducing controller and pilot workloads.
