Public NotificationsSlovenia Control, Slovenian Air Navigation Services, Limited is equipped to provide air traffic control and management in all phases of flight and traffic flow at airports in a safe, high-quality and efficient manner, to issue aeronautical information, and to introduce, maintain and upgrade systems and devices for air traffic control and management. After Slovenia became independent, but before the establishment of the company, these services were provided by bodies within the Ministry of Transport, most recently the Civil Aviation Administration. The Slovenian government established the company in 2004, and removed responsibility for the provision of air navigation services from the Civil Aviation Administration as a body within the Ministry of Transport.
The company’s core line of business is pursued via the following operational departments: Air Traffic Services (ATS), Communication, Navigation and Surveillance (CNS) and Aeronautical Information Services (AIS). The Meteorological Services (MET) are provided by the Slovenian Environment Agency.
The spin-off and establishment of the company represented an effective separation to ensure the independence of the national supervisory authority from air navigation service providers in accordance with the requirements of EU aviation regulations and the ICAO’s international standards and recommended practice. The duties of the national supervisory authority were assumed in 2011 by the newly established Civil Aviation Agency, while the Transport Directorate at the Ministry of Infrastructure and Spatial Planning of the Republikc of Slovenia, as the administrative authority, conducts supervision of the management of cost bases, sets policy objectives for civil aviation and adopts the national performance plan in line with Single European Sky regulations.
An important role in the management of air traffic in Slovenian airspace is played by Slovenian military authorities and the airports (Ljubljana Jože Pučnik, Maribor Edvard Rusjan, Portorož and Cerklje ob Krki), at which the company provides aerodrome and approach air traffic control.
