Nine northern European Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) have today signed a formal commercial alliance to improve efficiency, and reduce costs and environmental impact.
The new alliance, called Borealis Alliance, includes the ANSPs of Denmark, Estonia, Finland, Iceland, Ireland, Latvia, Norway, Sweden and the UK. They provide air traffic services for 3.5m flights a year, across 12.5 million Km2 of north European airspace. Between them, they form Europe’s major transatlantic gateway.
Borealis Alliance is a unique move to enable joint initiatives to improve flight efficiency and reduce environmental impact, delivered across the whole area in a move which will also streamline cost of services and operational/technical infrastructure.
