The CANSO Asia Pacific Region was established in 2008. It is a diverse region in terms of types of air navigation service provider (ANSP), technical challenges, traffic management and capacity issues, and cultural and political differences. One of its biggest challenges is how to manage the rapid growth of air travel across the region.
CANSO and its Members work closely with States and industry partners to transform air traffic management (ATM) in the region and its efforts are focused on ADS-B collaboration; air traffic flow management; collaborative decision making (CDM) and en-route performance-based navigation (PBN) harmonisation.
The region has a vision for safe, seamless and harmonised airspace. It cooperates with States and industry partners to help achieve this vision and through cross-industry groups such as the ICAO Asia Pacific Seamless ATM Planning Group.
The Asia Pacific CANSO CEO Committee (APC3) governs and directs CANSO’s work in the Asia Pacific, within the framework of the Organisation’s global policies and positions. APC3 is supported by the Director Asia Pacific Affairs and a number of subsidiary groups, dealing with a wide range of issues.
