Aviation connects the Netherlands with the world. Aviation is essential to the accessibility of the Netherlands with its dense population, and of its neighbouring countries.

Air Traffic Control the Netherlands - LVNL - is responsible for the management of the civil airspace and everything that this involves. For example modernisation and management of technological systems, providing aeronautical information and air traffic control training and providing aeronautical maps and publications.

For over 90 years, LVNL has been ensuring safe air traffic flows, in a professional and competent manner. We are proud to be the ones performing this responsible task.


The world of air traffic control is one of the most complex systems in the world, and it requires equally complex stakeholder management. Air Traffic Control the Netherlands interacts with the European Union, Dutch government, international businesses, airlines, passenger flows and local actors on a daily basis, all with their own demands. The organization also deals with global disruption that need swift answers, while depending on long term investments. Most importantly, the main task of Air Traffic Control NL is to facilitate safe air transport in the Dutch airspace. CEO Michiel van Dorst is leading the company through this maze of stakeholders and regulations, with innovation and strategic insights as leading pointers.
