ATNS Welcomes Global Aviation Stakeholders

Air Traffic & Navigation Services (ATNS) Ltd, in conjunction with the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO), is the proud host of the CANSO Annual General Meeting (AGM) and 19th Global Air Traffic Management (ATM) Summit, as well as the 3rd CANSO Africa Conference, to be held in Durban, South Africa on 13th to 16th June 2015.

Over 225 representatives of top Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) and ATM industry stakeholders from around the world have registered to attend. The CANSO Global ATM Summit, which is themed ‘Strengthening Air Traffic Management’, will mainly look at four aspects namely, economics, technology, infrastructure and regulation. Importantly, the summit will focus on ATM achievements to date.

The opening economics session will feature a presentation from the World Bank. The emphasis will be on aviation infrastructure globally and the challenges of funding ATM initiatives in different regions and/or continents. Subsequent sessions will be based on six high-profile case studies: OneSKY Australia; Remote Towers; Converging Runway Operations; Time-Based Separation; GBAS and COOPANS.

These sessions will comprise a mix of formats with presentations, panel discussions and audience participation.

The theme of the 3rd CANSO Africa Conference is ‘Moving towards Sustainable and Safe ATM in Africa’. According to CANSO Africa Chair and ATNS CEO, Thabani Mthiyane, participants are scheduled to discuss critical International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards and recommended practices that will ensure aviation contributes to economic growth in Africa. "Key Topics Include Status and Challenges on Sustainable ATM in Africa, Liberalisation of Air Transport, enabling Technologies, and Safety and Security" said Thabani.

CANSO Director General, Jeff Poole said "This is an exciting time for aviation in Africa with many challenges as well as opportunities. It is therefore appropriate that Africa is providing the stage for the industry to discuss the latest developments in the industry at the Global ATM Summit; to explore the steps needed to meet the challenges of sustainable ATM performance in Africa at the CANSO Africa Conference; and, of course for the CANSO Annual General Meeting. We are most grateful to ATNS for hosting all three events."

ATNS will spearhead a number of top industry exhibitions that will showcase some of the best aviation products and services currently on offer.
