HungaroControl considers options for renovation

Tourism

HungaroControl considers remote tower technology as an alternative to the concrete control tower from which it is currently in operation, Kornél Szepessy, the head of the air traffic controller, said in an interview with Hungarian economic daily Világgazdaság published yesterday. 

The head said that the firm’s control tower at Budapest’s Liszt Ferenc International Airport is facing significant renovation works in the upcoming 1-2 years, and an alternative must be found for this period.

HungaroControl could build either a new concrete tower or a temporary one, however, the application of a remote tower technology that allows air traffic controllers to see better through the use of monitors is the "most advantageous" option, the head told the daily.
