The Lithuanian Flight Information Region (FIR) encompasses the airspace extending over Lithuania’s territory and part of the Baltic Sea (76,126 sq km). It is crossed by a network of 40 transit routes which are simultaneously flown by about 30 aircraft.
This continuous process is being controlled by air traffic controllers of Vilnius Area Control Centre. The centre employs 35 controllers. The annual number of aircraft that are rendered air traffic services by them exceeds 200 thousand. The centre operates a modern EUROCAT X system corresponding to the state-of-the-art philosophy of air traffic control.
