AAI’s global meet

With an objective to address the air traffic flow capacity management (ATFCM) and form regulations to avoid exceeding flow of air traffic beyond the airport and air space capacity, the Air Traffic Flow Management Steering Group was constituted by International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). The group meets  once every two years to study the manner in which the demand capacity imbalance could be addressed uniformly across the globe so that the airline community could optimise its operations consuming the delay on account of such capacity imbalance with least inconvenience to the travelling passengers.

Airports Authority of India (AAI) is a vibrant growing aviation market in the world who decided to host the meeting in New Delhi.

The commitment of India to ICAO’s objectives of performance were based on management strategies to achieve consistent improvements in the area of safety, efficiency, security and environment. The remarkable progress made by AAI in establishing a nationwide ATFM system, contributed significantly towards development of regional ATFM framework facilitating harmonisation of ATM services across the Asia Pacific Airspace.

Shane Sumner, secretary, Asia – Pacific region, ICAO appreciated the contribution of India in bringing out global guideline document for Air Traffic Flow Management (DOC-9971) and congratulated AAI for its initiative in hosting this prestigious event and arranging a technical visit to the state of the art Central Air Traffic Flow Management – command and control centre located at IGI, Palam airport for gaining enormous insight knowledge in the Air Traffic Flow management.

The five day meeting was attended by delegates from USA, China, Japan, Republic of Korea, New Zealand, Thailand, Singapore, Hong Kong, China, Philippines, Bangladesh, Mongolia, Indonesia and Myanmar apart from various International Aviation organisations.
