By signing an agreement, LGS and “Oro Navigacija” hope to reach an accord over NINTA-ADAXA
2019 07 February,
On 6 February, State Joint Stock Company “Latvijas gaisa satiksme” (LGS) and Lithuanian air navigation service provider “Oro Navigacija” signed an agreement, which aims to resolve unclear issues that up until now have been interpreted differently by the two countries relating to the NINTA - ADAXA airspace segment, in which Latvia has the delegated right to provide air traffic control services.
“The agreement was achieved through lengthy, careful work and challenging negotiations. I hope that its signing shall serve as a new beginning of a successful cooperation between the two companies,” emphasises Dāvids Tauriņš, Chairman of the Board of LGS.
The signed set of documents pre-approved by the Ministry of Transport sets forth that LGS will henceforth continue to receive payment directly from "EUROCONTROL," the European Organisation for the Safety of Air Navigation , for services provided to airspace users in this air traffic route segment. In turn, based on a multilateral agreement "EUROCONTROL" will charge the users of the services.
The agreement between LGS and “Oro Navigacija” is one of the documents in a package signed by the aviation officials of Latvia and Lithuania.
