Through its structures, ENAV manages all stages of an aircraft's flight: the Route Services are entrusted to air traffic controllers operating in the ACC (Area Control Centre) and refer to the traffic overflight of Italian airspace with or without a stopover, while the Control Towers deal with the Terminal Services, take-offs and landings involving national airports within a radius of about 20 kilometres.
Safety and quality of service are the key words that inspire the ENAV culture, and therefore it is recognised as one of the best service providers at an international level, with an increasingly customer-oriented approach also aimed at defining a strategy capable of creating constant value for the growth of air transport.
The ENAV Group also includes the subsidiaries Techno Sky SRL, ENAV Asia Pacific Sdn Bhd and ENAV North Atlantic LLC. Thanks to these, in addition to providing air navigation services pursuant to the law and by-laws, the Company is able to guarantee the installation, maintenance and constant monitoring of the flight assistance systems and related hardware and software, to develop and test new technologies, and to be present abroad with business consultancy activities and the provision of services on international markets.
Specifically, Techno Sky, the logistics and maintenance company of the ENAV Group, ensures full, seamless operating efficiency and availability of Italy’s ATC (Air Traffic Control) installations, systems and software products.. It manages and maintains:
Software systems for a total number of 24,565 atm applications (air traffic anagement) in operation
Area control centres
Navigational aid systems
Techno Sky operates through its network present throughout Italy in order to meet each technical, implementation and management requirement in an effective and prompt manner.
As ENAV’s mission critical systems integrator, Techno Sky controls the full value chain, i.e. research and development, system engineering, design, ATM software development, weather system development, installation, integration, training, logistics, maintenance, measurement instrumentation calibration, spare-part management and repair management.
Techno Sky has a rich background of knowledge, technologies and expertise gained in more than forty years of activity as a market leader in ATM systems at ENAV’s service. This was also possible through its partnerships with major global ATM, ICT, meteorological and security system manufacturers. It markets its own services and is also involved in the development of projects on behalf of Italian and international organisations (ATM providers, agencies, institutions and airport managing authorities). ENAV Asia Pacific and ENAV North Atlantic, respectively established in 2013 and 2014, are based abroad.
ENAV Asia Pacific (EAP) is wholly-owned by ENAV. It was established as a private company limited by shares with head office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in March 2013. ENAV Asia Pacific provides air traffic control management and consultancy services, as part of marketing and sales activity, as well as other essential air navigation services. ENAV’s committed presence in the region makes it a reliable partner for all local companies, organisations and institutions. ENAV Asia Pacific aims to build long-term relations with its clients by meeting all needs in a structured, efficient and effective manner.
ENAV North Atlantic, also wholly-owned by ENAV, was established on 29 January 2014 in the form of a limited liability company under U.S. law. Its main objective is to manage ENAV’s investment in the share capital of Aireon LLC, a limited liability company under U.S. law whose corporate purpose is the provision of instrumental services for the surveillance activity of air navigation through a global satellite surveillancesystem. ENAV’s shareholding in the capital of Aireon through the subsidiary ENAV North Atlantic could reach a maximum of 12.5% of the relative preferred interest. Note that ENAV North Atlantic, due to the activity it carries out, has no employees.
ENAV also owns a significant shareholding (16.6%) in ESSP S.A.S., a company established under French law, which provides the GPS satellite signal enhancement service called EGNOS. As a result of the transformation in 2008 of the European Economic Interest Group (EEIG) established in 2001, ESSP has carried out in favour of the European Commission the first contract for EGNOS operations and for the provision of three services: OS (Open Service), SoL (Safety of Life) and EDAS (European Data Access Service). Together with ENAV, ESSP’s shareholders are another six of the largest providers of European air navigation services: DFS, DGAC-DSNA, ENAIRE, NATS, NAV-Portugal, Skyguide.
In 2013 ESSP was awarded the contract, issued by the European Agency for GNSS (GSA), for the supply of the EGNOS service from 2014 until 2021.
