Kenya’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport chooses Indra’s ATC system

Kenya’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) has selected Spanish information technology company Indra for modernising its air traffic control system.

Kenya’s Jomo Kenyatta International Airport (JKIA) has selected Spanish information technology company Indra to modernise its air traffic control system.

Along with JKIA, two other airports in Nairobi, notably Eastleigh and Wilson, will incorporate Indra’s system to coordinate flights arriving in any of the three airports.

Indra’s Air Automation system consists of the automated control centre, control towers and a simulator for the purpose of training the controllers.

By integrating the current sensor network, it will also offer a highly accurate view of the air traffic.

The solution will allow Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) to develop and alter its airspace while becoming familiarised with diverse operational situations.

KCAA will be able to adapt its management to the continuous changes taking place internationally and flexibly control Kenya’s airspace.

Furthermore, it will ensure enhanced safety and efficiency in all air operations managed by KCAA.

The aim of this project is to upgrade the country’s air traffic management and to transform the country into a regional hub.

Indra has modernised some of the key infrastructures in 48 African countries.

The company has installed more than 5,700 air traffic management systems in 180 countries.
