Akureyri Airport implements Automatic terminal information service (ATIS)
Voice ATIS (Automatic Terminal Information Service) has been implemented for Akureyri Airport (BIAR). The objective is to increase service and safety of flights using the airport. ATIS systems are already in use at Keflavik and Reykjavik Airports.
Airplanes using BIAR airport will receive information on weather, runway condition and other essential information by listening to the ATIS on frequency 136.200 MHZ or call +354 424 4039 instead of receiving the information on the tower frequency.
“This will increase safety at Akureyri Airport,” says Sigrún Björk Jakobsdóttir, CEO of Isavia Regional Airports. “This means the air traffic controllers will be able to focus more on separation between aircrafts and other services.”
