Indra has acquired one of the key projects for the future of air traffic control in Africa. The Spanish company will renew the air traffic control system at Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA), the most important in Kenya and the seventh in Africa, by number of passengers, to facilitate the coordination of flights to this infrastructure and the other two from Nairobi, Eastleigh and Wilson, with whom the system will also synchronize. The modern air automation system includes the automation of the center, the towers and the simulator for the training of air traffic controllers. You can also integrate the existing sensor network and ensure a high-precision air traffic view. This solution gives the KCAA (Kenya Civil Aviation Authority) the opportunity to dynamically develop and reorganize airspace and to adapt to different operating situations.
It will be able to flexibly control the country’s airspace and adapt its management to the continuous changes that are taking place around the world. It also strengthens its ability to ensure the highest levels of safety and efficiency in all flight operations it manages. This project is part of the work of the KCAA to modernize air traffic control in the country and to consolidate its position as a regional traffic distribution center (hub). The contract strengthens Indra as one of the leading providers of air traffic systems on the African continent. In addition to important projects in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, it maintains close relationships with ASECNA (Agence pour la Scurit de la Navigation Arienne en Afrique et Madagascar). The company has developed projects in 48 African countries.
