Latin America and Caribbean (LATAM/CAR) is one of the fastest growing regions in the world for air travel. Its ANSPs have special characteristics: almost all ANSPs are State owned; many are managed by the military; and politics plays a big role. CANSO is taking the lead to transform air traffic management (ATM) performance across the region through sharing best practice, raising awareness of key issues and organising seminars, workshops and training.
CANSO has a particular focus on working with States, industry partners and ANSPs to raise awareness of and help implement ICAO’s Aviation System Block Upgrades (ASBUs) in the region. As part of this initiative, CANSO shares best practice on implementing performance-based navigation (PBN); promotes the benefits of cooperating with industry partners to implement collaborative decision making (CDM); and continually works hard to improve safety through programmes such as the CANSO Runway Safety Initiative and implementing safety management systems in ANSPs.
CANSO works closely with regional industry partners and is fully involved in a number of pan regional industry groups.
The Latin America and Caribbean CANSO CEO Committee (LAC3) governs and directs CANSO’s work in Latin America and the Caribbean, within the framework of the Organisation’s global policies and positions. LAC3 is supported by the Director Latin America and Caribbean Affairs and a number of workgroups, dealing with a wide range of issues.
