  NAV PORTUGAL Rua D – Edificio 121 – Aeroporto de Lisboa 1700-008 Lisboa Portugal Paulo Lagarto +351218553143     COMPANY DESCRIPTION NAV Portugal is the ANSP in the airspace under the responsibility of Portugal, which is divided into two regions: The Lisbon Flight Information Region (FIR), with 671,000 km2, covering Mainland Portugal and the Madeira Archipelago; and the Flight Information Region of Santa Maria, with 5.18 million km2, which includes a vast area of the North Atlantic Ocean and the Azores Archipelago. NAV Portugal continued to recover the traffic loss caused by the pandemic, having managed in 2022 812,855 flights – a number that represents a 5,0% decrease regarding 2019, but an increase of 67,8% comparing with 2021. NAV has a team of around 1,000 highly qualified technicians who ensure the safety of passengers and planes 24 hours a day, 365 days a year.

PRODUCTS/SERVICES Late 2022 marks the culmination of more than 5 years of preparation and dedication to our future. This was an arduous and laborious migration, but not even a pandemic context stopped it because our teams were tireless, with everyone on the same course. In November 2022, we have migrated to a new air traffic management system: the innovative TOPSKY will further strengthen our impact for a more efficient and sustainable world. It allows us to reinforce the safety of our activity with more technology that supports our team for better and faster decisions. It also improves our ability to optimize routes and, in time, recover delays, thus contributing to saving fuel and reducing our carbon footprint. Our Lisbon Air Traffic Control Centre is also a laboratory of technology, innovation, and development, with a modern, brand new Operations Room. Our commitment is that, today and every day, we will continue to evolve. Not only in technological renewal, but also as a team. Our sector is networked, and we correspond, increasingly interconnected. People are increasingly willing to fly. We are prepared and available for the relentless growth in air traffic, the technological challenges of the Single European Sky and the ever-changing world.    SUPPLIER LISTINGS 69
