Aeronautical Information Service (AIS)
of Ukraine was established in June 1996.
Since September 1998, AIS has been incorporated into the Ukrainian State Air Traffic Services Enterprise. AIS is the only authorized and accountable body for provision of aeronautical information service in Ukraine, it acts on the basis of the authority delegated to it by the CAA of Ukraine.
Since July 1999, AIS has become a part of the Joint civil-military air traffic management system of Ukraine.
AIS comprises 5 departments:
- Aeronautical Information Department;
- NÎÒÀÌ Department;
- Publication Department;
- Automation Department;
- Pre-flight Information Service Department in Boryspil airport.
AIS of Ukraine is responsible for the collection and dissemination of official aeronautical information relating to the entire territory and airspace of Ukraine, including the airspace over the high seas areas and other areas in accordance with regional agreements.
The Aeronautical Information Service is to provide users with reliable, timely and accurate information for the preparation to and execution of flights, and to ensure the necessary level of safety, regularity and efficiency.
Requirements to AIS are defined in the Aeronautical Information Service rules, based on the standards of ICAO Annex 15, which specifies the type and amount of information required, as well as the ways of its delivery to the consumer.
In accordance with the requirements of the ICAO Standards and Recommended Practices, the Air Code of Ukraine, Provisions on the use of the airspace of Ukraine, AIS of Ukraine publishes the aeronautical information in the form of the Integrated Aeronautical Information Package, which includes:
Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP)
- Aeronautical Information Publication (AIP), including AIP Amendments (AIP AMDT);

In December 2011, AIS joined the Pan-European AIS database (EAD) under the scenario of the EAD full set of static aeronautical data.
Within the framework of the future development of the aeronautical information system and the transition to digital technology of collection, storage, processing and transmission of data/information, AIS participates in ICAO's global project on transition from Aeronautical Information Service (AIS) to Aeronautical Information Management (AIM). National “Road Map” for the transition from AIS to AIM in Ukraine was developed and approved with an end date of 2017.
AIS participates in realisation of the LSSIP implementation objective on provision of quality of aeronautical data and aeronautical information. This objective establishes the requirements for accuracy, resolution and integrity of aeronautical data and aeronautical information. It is applied to the European air traffic management systems (EATMN), their components and the associated procedures, related to the processes of creation, receipt, storage, processing, transmission and dissemination of aeronautical data and aeronautical information.
Rules, procedures, documentation requirements and the order of provision the Ukrainian airspace users with essential aeronautical information service are set out in the following national regulatory documents:
