SMATSA’ s core business is to provide safe, efficient and timely air traffic services within the airspace of the Republic of Serbia and the State of Montenegro, the airspace above the part of the Adriatic Sea, as well as 55% of upper airspace of Bosnia and Herzegovina. 

As a company with limited liability, SMATSA carries out its activity adhering to national and international air traffic regulations and agreements. 

SMATSA is attentive to the importance of building an efficient corporate structure as it applies great efforts in order to shape and optimise organisational processes, build reliable human resources, maintain efficient systems and launch innovative projects. 

ATM related projects and plans aimed to maintain and improve the safety levels and operations’ efficiency is SMATSA’s permanent mission. The plans are focused on the quality improvements of ANS provision in line with SES requirements and forthcoming trends.

The FAMUS modernisation project implementation (finished in 2011) ensured a significant improvement concerning SMATSA performance in the SES context and enabled creation of good grounds for accomplishment of ANS related objectives. In addition, SMATSA’s Safety Management System successfully deals with the continuous safety challenges caused by the new systems, equipment installation and traffic demand. 

SMATSA’s highly competent staff supports the high level of services’ provision in the new operational environment. Air traffic control capacity provided by SMATSA is gradually increased through a variety of measures including the recruitment of additional air traffic controllers and educated staff.
