The Swiss Federal Office of Civil aviation awarded ARCS and its cooperation partner, ACR Aviation Capacity Resources AB (www.acr-sweden.se) with a key consultancy contract concerning the development of a draft strategy for Switzerland’s airspace and aviation infrastructure.

FOCA has been mandated to undertake a holistic re-organisation of Swiss airspace and the aviation infrastructure using a "clean sheet approach" and a key deliverable of this process is to develop the main strategic directions which can be applied to achieve the desired future state of the Swiss aviation system (https://www.bazl.admin.ch/bazl/de/home/sicherheit/infrastruktur/avistrat.html).

The selection in July 2020 of the ARCS/ACR consortium confirms that the selected pool of local and international expertise and experience within these organizations is well fitted to achieve the goal to deliver a visionary, innovative and yet pragmatic strategy draft to FOCA.

The strategy document is currently submitted to the FOCA and we will publish it here by the end of February 2021.
