Finavia, the managing body of Finland’a airports plans to install a new electronic air traffic control system called eSTRIP, at Helsinki International Airport.

The new air traffic control system will ensure smooth and safe operations at the airport, even if traffic volumes increase.

The new system will restrict entry into runways and taxiways without permission from traffic control, and these permissions will henceforth be managed with an electronic tool.

Under the new system, vehicles moving in the airport area will be equipped with radio transmitters and a positioning system, which will provide traffic control a real-time image with automatically updated identification of aircraft and land vehicles.
