First up there's news that Indra has been awarded a contract for the delivery of air traffic navigation systems at three major airports in South Korea. The systems will roll out at the airports of Ulsan, Muan and Yeosu. Here's the full story if you'd like to take a look.

In Iceland, it's good to hear that STR has partnered up with Isavia and now completed the installation and commissioning of a GRF compliant cenralized D-ATIS system. Click this link to take a look at the details.

There is a really exciting story developing as some FAB CE States predict they will reach 2019 traffic levels this November. Certain states are seeing a faster-than-forecast recovery that we are really pleased to see!

You can read the EUROCONTROL Think Paper #14 using this link. In this report, EUROCONTROL assesses whether the European Route Charges System is still the right move for the future. The huge impact of the pandemic and pressure on how these services are financed means there is plenty to consider.

Finally, why not check out an episode of the Radar Contact podcast? In this episode, we talk about Just Culture with two guests from Skyguide - Mario Winiger and Melanie Hulliger.
