Altitude Angel Announces Austria Expansion Plans

UK aviation company and UTM provider Altitude Angel is expanding operations and opening an office in Vienna, Austria. The move appears to be a step to mitigate any issues caused by the UK’s planned departure from the European Union.

As the terms of that departure are still unclear, many companies seeking to guarantee close relations with the continent are taking matters into their own hands.

The new office opening represents the first step in Altitude Angel’s international expansion, as it strengthens its portfolio of partners and projects across the globe, which includes Frequentis, DJI and the FAA’s LAANC program.

Altitude Angel are opening an office in Austria with Brexit uncertainty looming.

Recently, Altitude Angel worked alongside DJI and a number of other parties in UTM testing during Operation Zenith at Manchester Aiport, England. Altitude Angel has also partnered with DJI to support the rollout of GEO 2.0 across Europe.

Altitude Angel to stay close with European partners

On the international expansion, Richard Parker, Altitude Angel, CEO and founder, said: “Opening an office in Vienna is a milestone in the history of Altitude Angel. With the uncertainty Brexit represents for many industry stakeholders, as an international company dedicated to building the future infrastructure for the safe integration of drones, we’re taking this positive step. Our European partners will now have a hub on their doorstep to manage their requirements in an effective manner, regardless of what happens in the political landscape.”

Parker continued: “There were a number of cities under consideration for our first international office, but our strong and growing relationship with Frequentis, meant Vienna held a number of key strategic benefits for us. This is the first in a number of international expansion moves we have planned for 2019 and 2020.”
