"Keldabe ATC to Amber Nine. Pare sol. Wait one. [Pause] Keldabe welcomes careful aruetiise if their credit's good. [...] Follow your escort."
―Keldabe Air Traffic Control and Jedi Knight Jaina Solo[src]

Keldabe Air Traffic Control or Keldabe ATC, was the service responsible for monitoring and directing Mandalorian airspace. Headquartered in Mandalore's capital city of Keldabe,[1] Keldabe Air Traffic Control possessed standard operating procedures that dictated they monitor all non-Mandalorian starships on the ground for signs of trouble.[2]

In the year 25 ABY, Keldabe Air Traffic Control contacted the reigning Mand'alor Boba Fett upon his approach to Keldabe, notifying Fett that his contact Udelen was waiting for him at the city spaceport and his ship was under observation.[2]

When the Jedi Knight Jaina Solo journeyed to Mandalorian space in 41 ABY, she contacted Keldabe Air Traffic Control requesting permission to land on the planet Mandalore. Keldabe ATC assigned the Jedi an escort in the form of a Bes'uliik-class starfighter and instructed her to follow it to the spaceport.[1]
