The aim of the Action is to relocate the provision of the Air Traffic Control Services (ATS) of two airports in the Netherlands, Maastricht Aachen Airport and Groningen Airport Eelde, by creating a Remote Tower Centre at Schiphol Airport's facilities and by deploying Remote Towers in the two relocated airports.

The Action will contribute to the optimisation of the ATS at the two targeted airports as well as to the restructuration of the lower Dutch airspace increasing the harmonisation and improving the civil-military cooperation in the Netherlands.
