FAT accepted for the Shannon Aeradio, Ballygirreen – Iceland Radio, Gannet connection

FAT was performed at Gannet/Gufunes premises from February 13th to 16th. It is planned that the system will be in operation from March 29th 2006.
The ATS Communication Centers are now able to work flights irrespective of ATC boundaries. This provides more flexible and improved services for oceanic air traffic. In addition this connection provides the opportunity to balance workload through sharing of radio operators.
