The MUAC story

The MUAC story begins back in the sixties, when air travel started to become popular as a result of mass tourism and business travel. MUAC was established as part of a broader pan-European vision to create a number of similar facilities across the continent to ensure a common, consolidated and more efficient approach to the provision of air traffic control services, in order to meet the needs of the newly thriving aviation industry. What was required was an interoperable control system which transcended national borders. These were the very first steps towards the objectives of the Single European Sky.

More than four decades after its initial operations began, MUAC has grown into one of the best-performing air navigation service providers in Europe, with excellent safety records, first-rate cost-efficiency and the highest controller productivity on the continent, as proven by international benchmarks.
