Italian airport solutions company ENAV has delivered the first of two air traffic control towers that will be installed at the Mitiga Airport in Libya as part of an ongoing infrastructure revamp project, reports Oscar Nkala.

The mobile air control tower arrived in Mitiga yesterday and will be installed shortly by Techno Sky, a subsidiary of ENAV. A fixed air control tower will also be built to improve the air traffic safety and control capabilities of the airport.

In terms of a deal signed in March, ENAV will train several Libyan air traffic controllers who will operate the towers. The company will also train technical crews to maintain and service the control towers.
