The official signing of the service provision contract for Coflight Cloud Services (CCS) Technical Integration Service between skyguide and CCS, in July 2020 is a major step in the on-going deployment of the service. This achievement has been possible thanks to a successful international collaboration and partnership between skyguide, DSNA and ENAV. CCS teams continue to demonstrate their commitment to improve and expand CCS services.
