Airbus ProSky, the air traffic management (ATM) subsidiary of Airbus, was founded in 2011 to facilitate the development and support of ATM modernisation and optimization. With more than 20,000 new aircraft expected in the skies over the next two decades, the need to increase capacity is critical to air navigation service providers, airlines and airports.

Airbus ProSky’s products and services in airspace design, airport solutions and air traffic flow management deliver just that.

NEXTGEN and SESAR programmes

Airbus ProSky is committed to enhancing the performance and support of modern ATM systems such as Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR) in Europe and the Next-Generation Air Transportation System (NextGen) in the US. A major goal of Airbus ProSky is to accelerate the implementation of these two programmes and link them together by capitalising on their technological, operational and commercial synergies.

By taking a multi-dimensional approach including operational, technical and financial, Airbus ProSky will deliver next-generation services and systems needed for improved performance, today.

While the general public typically views ATM transformation as a sweeping set of technological changes in air navigation service provider (ANSP) infrastructure, the transformation must run deeper and further if we are truly going to support safe and environmentally sustainable air transportation growth for the next decade and beyond.

This transformation must extend not only political and geographic boundaries, but also beyond the lines of traditional separation among ATM suppliers, users and stakeholders. The themes of collaboration must run both technologically and culturally.

Clearly, the future ATM system brings a new model of collaboration between ground-based and airborne capabilities that was not possible in the past. Airbus ProSky is dedicated to supporting collaborative decision-making (CDM) and the communication between ANSPs, aircraft operators and airport authorities for the benefit of the total system.

Air traffic management benefits

Recent studies indicate that next-generation ATM systems can save the global aviation community over three billion gallons of fuel, eliminate 29 million tons of carbon emissions and reduce four million hours of delays.

These savings amount to $29bn of net benefits in the US alone each year and $135bn globally in the first year of full system deployment in 2026. In total, the projected transformation will save $897bn.

Built on the philosophy of intelligent technology, Airbus ProSky delivers best-in-class expertise and solutions to maximise efficiency, better performance, increase capacity and support eco sustainability, while allowing for effortless integration. Partnership and collaboration are crucial to delivering next-generation ATM solutions today. Partnering with ANSPs, aircraft operators and airport authorities, Airbus ProSky assesses the needs and requirements of the client to bring best-in-class tools for rapid ATM advancement.

Yangon International Airport

Yangon International Airport (YIA) is the second biggest airport in Myanmar, after Mandalay Airport. It is located in Mingaladon, which is around 15km north of downtown Yangon.

China Eastern and Airbus ProSky Demonstrate New Procedures in Yushu

Early this month, China Eastern successfully validated new 'Required Navigation Performance Authorization Required' procedures (RNP AR) at Yushu Airport with a demonstration flight at Yushu Airport. The Yushu airport sits at an elevation of 12,811ft with high surrounding terrain. This type of performance-based navigation (PBN) enhances safety in areas with challenging terrain.
