Saab and LFV, the Swedish air navigation service provider, have jointly developed a system which facilitates remotely operated air traffic control of one or multiple airports from a single command centre in Sundsvall. In 2015 Örnsköldsvik Airport became the first in the world to be operated by means of remote tower services, led from Sundsvall.

SDATS is now taking another step by becoming an established provider of air traffic services and taking over air traffic management from LFV for both these airports. The agreement will come into force on 1 January 2019, and will run over six years, with an option for another two years.

"The new agreement provides us with the right conditions to develop our effective administration of air traffic management and future-proof the airports. I'm looking forward to working further with SDATS as provider of air traffic management," said Frank Olofsson, head of Sundsvall-Timrå Airport.
