The Reval air traffic virtual tower system at Kuressaare Airport (EEKE) has officially transitioned into operational service, according to Adacel Technologies Limited Adacel and Estonian Air Navigation Services (EANS). The system at Kuressaare received its air traffic service approval from the Estonian Transport Administration (ETA) on 8 May 2024.

Kuressaare is the second operational airport at the Remote Tower Center (RTC) in Tallinn, where Tartu Airport has been operating since April 2023.

“This milestone is historic because we have achieved our goal of providing air traffic services to multiple regional airfields simultaneously from one centralized location,” shares Ivar Värk, EANS CEO.

Värk continues, “Estonia became the sixth country in the world to provide digital tower service when Tartu went operational. We’re delighted that Estonia now has two regional airports equipped with operational Reval virtual tower systems.

Together with Adacel, our goal is to become the first country in the world where all regional airports have been transferred to remote air traffic services based on digital technology.”
