■ LIBYA: LYCAA awards Italy's ENAV, TechnoSky, ATC overhaul and upgrade contracts.

The Libyan Civil Aviation Authority (مصلحة الطيران المدني‎ - LYCAA) has awarded L'Ente Nazionale di Assistenza al Volo (ENAV), the Italian state-owned company specializing in air navigation services together with its subsidiary Techno Sky, two contracts for the supply of consultancy, technical and training services to assist in the modernisation of the LYCAA's systems and its organisational and regulatory processes.

Under the deal, ENAV will establish a development plan aimed at both modernising the North African country's air navigation services and enhancing its capacity to manage growing traffic volumes in Libyan airspace. ENAV will likewise provide a range of skills to LYCAA managers who have the task of guiding the decision-making processes for a transition to new operational scenarios in the context of Air Traffic Management.

Techno Sky, on the other hand, will have the strategic task of undertaking a overall survey in order to provide a clear picture of the current technological situation, so that medium term goals can be set for improving technical maintenance, logistics, plant and ground systems.
"This success, in a country that is so close and strategic, " said CEO Massimo Garbini, "demonstrates the commercial maturity achieved by ENAV, and is a further recognition of the Company’s quality on the International level. These two important contracts are all the more important in a period of severe crisis in air transport. Moreover, we are proud to represent Italian excellence in a sector involving such advanced technical skills and specialisation."
During a meeting at ENAV's headquarters in Rome, Capt. Nasereddin Shaebelain, the Director General of the LYCAA, said the contracts are part of efforts to improve communications with Europe as a whole (Italy in particular) while upgrading their aviation regulatory authority and aviation industry to international levels.
