First up this week, ENAIRE's Board of Directors have awarded a turnkey contract to supply 91 new control positions with cutting-edge iFOCUCS technology, for its control centres in Madrid, Seville and Palma for 32,149,194 euros. This project is part of ENAIRE's Strategic Plan, the 2025 Flight Plan, and includes another phase that will provide an additional 132 positions, and an estimated 43 million euros, for the control centres in Barcelona, Valencia, the Canary Islands and Madrid.


Next, the FAA has awarded more than $31 million in grants to expand cargo infrastructure at nine airports across the United States. According to the FAA, each project will help expedite the movement of goods throughout the country. “Every day, we rely on goods transported through our nation’s airports,” said US Transportation Secretary, Pete Buttigieg. “This announcement will make improvements at airports across our country so they can handle cargo more efficiently and help strengthen America’s supply chains.”


In other news, ENAV has acquired a new customer. They've signed a contract with  Maldives Airport Company. The contract is worth approximately $500,000 and is foreseen to provide for the supply, installation, and operational management of the Aviation Message Management System (AMHS) at Velana International Airport in Malé. It's the main airport of the Maldivian archipelago over which 4.3 million passengers and 64 thousand flights transit annually.


Finally, following the establishment of the integrated training system for all types of air traffic controllers (ATCO) in 2021 by Croatia Control Ltd. (CCL), the first male and female Area ATCOs fully trained in Croatia recently finished their training. Up to 2020, all ATCOs had been trained abroad for the most part of their demanding training.
