Sector L is the Malmö lower sector, covering a part of airspace in the southern Sweden FIR, below FL285. It operates on 134.975 MHz.

 

The main tasks of Sector L are:

  • Approach control for Malmö Sturup airport
  • Descend and arrival instructions for Copenhagen arrivals via Alma VOR ALM and Sveda VOR SVD
  • Initial climb for Copenhagen departures via ASTOS, KEMAX, VEDAR, BALOX, SIMEG
  • Descend and arrival instructions for Gothenburg arrivals from the south-east
  • Initial climb for Gothenburg departures towards the south-east
  • Traffic to and from Bornholm Rønne

Complexity in the sector can get fairly high when the amount of traffic to and from both Copenhagen and Sturup increases. Adherence to standard transfer levels should, however, prevent any conflicts. Sector L is one of the few sectors that permanently provide an approach control service, since no local approach unit exists for Malmö Sturup.

Rønne (EKRN) TMA is class E between FL95 and 4500 FT, and class D below 3500 FT (see AIP Denmark for details). Service in the upper part of the TMA, above 4500 FT, is always provided by Sector L. Below 4500 FT, service is provided by Rønne Tower. When Rønne Tower is not available, Sector L will provide service in the entire TMA and within the control zone. There is no radar coverage available below 4500 FT; only procedural service must be provided in the lower TMA and control zone.

Sector may be combined with Sectors 5 or 6, but will usually be operated on its own if a large amount of traffic is expected at Sturup and/or Copenhagen.
