About Us

Establishment of a company

Kontrola zračnega prometa Slovenije, d.o.o. was established on the basis of the Act on the Provision of Air Navigation Services, in accordance with the Companies Act and the Public Utilities Act, and in connection with the Aviation Act. The owner and founder of the company is the Slovenian state. In the rest of the world the company goes under its English name of Slovenia Control, Slovenian Air Navigation Services, Limited.​

Operation of Air Traffic Control

lovenia Control is the holder of the licence to provide air navigation services, namely air traffic control services, aeronautical information services and communications, navigation and surveillance services. The company provides the technical and operational capacity for providing air navigation services in a manner that is safe, free of disruption, flexible in capacity, advantageous in terms of price, cost-effective, close-to-nature and of the very highest quality, adapting constantly to the actual current or future air traffic density in the given airspace.

The company is therefore 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. In addition, it has the expertise to develop the field of air traffic control, and to draw up regulations in this field. It is also able to participate in projects at home and abroad, and to help contribute to decisions that benefit Slovenia as a country. Establishing cooperation with government bodies, most notably the Ministry of Defence of the Republic of Slovenia and the Slovenian Army, is a significant part of national security and sovereignty, as air traffic control is of strategic importance and is a crucial element in the policing of Slovenian airspace.

All of the above forms the basis for providing the flexible and timely management of the flow of air traffic through the airspace controlled by the company, which is integrated into the European network of air traffic management. As a provider of air navigation services, the company pursues a vital and irreplaceable activity in the civil aviation system, which is defined in national strategic documents as one of the major factors in economic development.​

Company Expertise

​The company provides air navigation services in Slovenia in accordance with Slovenian legislation, with European standards, with the standards and recommendations of the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) and the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation (Eurocontrol), with letters of agreement (LoAs) concluded with neighbouring air traffic controls, and with international treaties by which Slovenia is bound.

The company and its personnel are the sole agency in Slovenia to pursue the activity of air traffic control and management. Its activities cannot be compared to those of any other company or agency in the country, and the employees therefore hold a very specific position at the company, comparable solely to those at companies pursuing the same business activities in the rest of the world. Given the specific nature of their skills and know-how, employees at the company are involved in numerous activities affecting the development of the profession, regulations and developments in this area.​

International cooperation of the company

INTERNATIONAL COOPERATION

Implementing the Single European Sky requires close cooperation at European level. The Company is committed to strengthening its role and cooperation with neighbouring countries in the envisaged airspace transformation in the region, both at the level of the FAB CE and in cooperation and integration with other FABs.

FAB CE initiative and cooperation with FABs

The European Single European Sky legislation required EU Member States to establish Functional Airspace Blocks (FABs) based on operational requirements and defined irrespective of national borders. The provision of air navigation services and related tasks is based on optimisation and enhanced cross-border cooperation between air navigation service providers. In order to fulfil this obligation, Austria, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Slovakia and Slovenia on 5 May 2011 at Brdo pri Kranju concluded an international agreement - the Agreement on the Establishment of a Functional Airspace Block of Central Europe which entered into force on 20 March 2012 and established the Functional Airspace Block of Central Europe - FAB CE. Furthermore, on 30 May 2011 the air navigation service providers of these countries concluded the Cooperation Agreement of the FAB ce air navigation service providers, to which the Company is a signatory. The Cooperation Agreement of the FAB CE air navigation service providers regulates the cooperation activities of the Air Navigation Service Providers of the FAB CE countries through which the functional airspace block is implemented, defining their powers and responsibilities. The purpose of these cooperative activities is to contribute to the implementation, operability and further development of the FAB CE, to continuously improve the level of safety, cost-effectiveness, environmental acceptability, optimisation and efficiency orientation of the provision of air navigation services, and to ensure the implementation of the individual objectives set out in each applicable Performance Plan. 

In order to comply with the requirements of the Single European Sky legislation and in line with the European Commission's request for air navigation service providers to increase cross-border cooperation, on 17 October 2014 the Company, together with the air navigation service providers of Austria, the Czech Republic, Croatia, Hungary and Slovakia, established a joint legal entity - a commercial company with the status of a limited liability company, within the framework of which joint projects, consultancy services, part of procurement, etc. are carried out. The registered office of FABCE, Aviation Services, Ltd., is in the Republic of Slovenia.

Within the framework of FAB CE, the Company also cooperates with the air navigation service providers from other FABs in the framework of the "Inter-FAB cooperation" platform. The purpose of the cooperation between FABs is to express common views within the EU, to exchange experiences in the field of air traffic management, to pursue common objectives and interests in various fields and to cooperate in the establishment of the Single European Sky.

Free Route Airspace (FRA)

The Company is actively participating in the expansion of the Free Route Airspace (FRA) project. The expansion of the SECSI FRA, which brings together the airspace of eight (8) countries in the region (Austria, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia, Montenegro, North Macedonia, Albania and Slovenia), to the airspace of Italy (FRA IT), has made the combined FRA one of the largest FRAs in Europe. The added value of increasing the size of the cross-border single airspace without air routes is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, reduce fuel consumption and move towards the goals of a carbon-free society, reducing travel times and thus improving mobility.

Activities related to airspace optimization and the optimization of regional ICT and CNS infrastructure are carried out in accordance with the FAB CE strategy and the European Airspace Architecture Study (AAS).

Cooperation with international organisations

The Company's international activities include active cooperation with international civil aviation organisations (Eurocontrol, EASA, ICAO, CANSO, ECAC, ATCA).​
