This control centre will facilitate the coordination of flights approaching JKIA and two other airports in Nairobi (Eastleigh and Wilson), with which Indra’s system will also be synchronized.


The-state-of-the-art Indra Air Automation system includes the automation of the control center, control towers and a simulator for training the controllers. It will also incorporate the existing sensor network, providing a highly accurate view of the air traffic.


This solution will provide the Kenya Civil Aviation Authority (KCAA) with the ability to develop and reorganise its airspace in a dynamic manner, adapting to the different operational situations.


It will be able to flexibly control Kenya’s airspace and adapt its management to the constant changes taking place globally.


It will also enhance the KCAA’s ability to ensure the highest possible level of safety and efficiency in all the air operations that it manages.


This project forms part of the KCAA’s efforts to modernize the country’s air traffic management and consolidate the country’s position as a regional hub.


The contract will reinforce Indra’s position as one of the leading providers of air traffic systems on the African continent. In addition to carrying out important projects in Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia, Indra maintains a close relationship with the ASECNA (Agency for the Safety of Air Navigation in Africa and Madagascar). The company has completed projects in 48 African countries, helping to modernise some of the key infrastructures for the development of the contninent.
