Organisation Overview

Belgocontrol is an autonomous public company with the following mission:

  1. To ensure the air traffic      safety in the airspace for which the Belgian State is responsible.
  2. To control the aircraft      movements at and around Brussels National Airport. As a result of the      co-operation agreement with the Regions, Belgocontrol also ensures the air      traffic safety at the regional public airports and airfields.
  3. To supply information about air      traffic to the police, the airport inspection and the air traffic      services.
  4. To provide meteorological      information to the air traffic services as well as to telecommunication      services and other services.

Belgocontrol was created in October 1998 and consequently took over the tasks of the ‘Air Traffic Safety’ Department of the former Regie der Luchtwegen/Régie des Voies Aériennes. 

Belgocontrol is also a member, together with the ANSPs of France, Germany, Luxembourg, Switzerland and the Netherlands, of the Functional Airspace Block Europe Central (FABEC).
