Reykjavik East Sector

Rekjavik East Sector is an all level sector covering the eastern third of Reykjavik OCA and a delegated area in the UK. It operates on 126.750 MHz. The entire sector has SSR radar coverage.

The main tasks of East sector are:

  • Issuing oceanic clearances for aircraft entering Reykjavik OCA from Norway FIR and Scottish FIR
  • Identification of aircraft entering Reykjavik OCA
  • Climb and descent for Faroe Islands traffic

During busy traffic periods, two Iceland Radio frequencies may be opened to relay oceanic clerances to pilots: East Radio (126.650) for aircraft entering from Norway FIR and South Radio (129.625) for aircraft entering from Scottish FIR. Aircraft entering from Bodø FIR will have obtained an oceanic clearance from the Bodø OCC controller. 

All aircraft entering Reykjavik OCA must be positively identified with a transponder code change, regardless of the actual aircraft code. To avoid duplicates, transponder codes should always be obtained here.

East Sector is responsible for delivering Oceanic clearance to Faroe Islands traffic when there is no local ATC available, however only traffic information may be provided at the aerodrome.

East Sector will usually be combined with Reykjavic South Sector, and may also be combined with North West Sector if all Reykjavik sectors are operated by a single controller.
