The Kuwaiti General Directorate of Civil Aviation has awarded a contract to Indra for the upgrade of the country’s automation systems for air traffic management (ATM).

Under the €20m ($27.5m) contract, Indra will equip approach control unit and the control tower of Kuwait International Airport with automated systems of ATM.

The company will also implement a back-up control centre for contingencies to guarantee the safety of air operations and could adopt new flight management concepts.

The new air traffic model will offer flexibility and efficiency to airlines enabling them to choose the best route according to their destination, instead of using pre-established routes.

It will also help to reduce CO2 emissions, fuel consumption, enhance punctuality and facilitate the detection of possible conflicts in time calculations.

Indra will also launch an electronic message exchange system and implement the Air Fixed Telecommunication Network in Kuwait.
