FCC is to bid for air traffic control contracts in the forthcoming privatisation announced by Spain's Infrastructure Ministry. To this end, FCC has signed an alliance with Swedish company LFV to bid jointly for air traffic control contracts at Spanish airports, under tenders currently being organised by AENA.
FCC, which is controlled by Esther Koplowitz, has established subsidiary NAVSA (Navegación y Servicios Aeroportuarios S.A.) to engage in air traffic control and aviation services. FCC will establish a joint venture with LFV in which NAVSA will own 65% and LFV 35%.
FCC has created NAVSA with a view to bidding for privatised air traffic control contracts in Spain. The new company plans to associate its brand with effective, responsible, safe air traffic control. Its primary objective is to improve services to citizens in the area of aviation by adapting to the new situation defined by the Single European Sky regulation in response to growing air traffic.
