Azerbaijan’s Azeraeronavigation, the country’s air navigation service provider, has selected aviation consultancy Helios to support it with the upgrade of its communication, navigation and surveillance systems infrastructure for air traffic management.

Bordering with Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan and Russia from the north and east, Iran from the south, and Georgia, Armenia and Turkey from the west, Azerbaijan’s airspace is used by dozens of international and national carriers. The country’s airspace, of which 86,600 sq. km is land and 78,000 sq. km is above the Caspian sea area, currently spans a route network of around 8,000 km. 

Azeraeronavigation, the organisation which control the country’s air traffic management (ATM) and communication navigation and surveillance systems (CNS), needs to prepare for a growing number of commercial flights passing through its airspace. The organisation has also developed a strategy to become one of the best performing and innovative air navigation service providers in the region. To support delivery of both objectives, the organisation has brought consultants from Helios on board.Azerbaijan's air navigation service provider flies in HeliosHelios will assess Azeraeronavigation’s current infrastructure with a particular focus on improving the efficiency and effectiveness of its components, and help to develop an implementation roadmap.
