Providing civil-military air navigation services across borders at our Maastricht UAC

25 January 2019

EUROCONTROL’s Maastricht Upper Area Control Centre (MUAC) has provided air navigation services in the upper airspace of Belgium, north-west Germany, Luxembourg and the Netherlands to civil traffic for many years. Since 2017 Germany and the Netherlands also delegated the task of the service provision to military air traffic in the Hannover UIR and the Amsterdam FIR above FL245 to MUAC. By absorbing military traffic into its operations, MUAC has become Europe’s first multinational, cross-border civil-military air navigation service provider (ANSP).
