Investments in technology

Our objectives look to the sky: for technical, economic and performance levels, we want not only to achieve the quality standards required, but also to have our standing confirmed as amongst the international excellences.

The guarantee of excellence is also hinged on our three-year investments plans - reviewed annually - of which interventions involving the modernisation of operative technological infrastructures are the main part.

IN 2017, WE INVESTED €105 ML IN OUR INFRASTRUCTURES.

Our staff needs to have cutting-edge instruments available to them. Our investments in infrastructures have aimed to implement and maintain operating technological infrastructures, to allow for the evolution of the ATM technological platform with new operative concepts, infrastructures, plants and management information systems.

OUR COMMITMENT TO IMPROVE CONSTANTLY IS KEY TO OUR STRATEGY: GUARANTEEING DELIVERY AND CONTINUITY OF SERVICE IN COMPLIANCE WITH OPERATING SAFETY TARGETS.
