Operations Quarterly Update

Quarter 1, 2018

In November, CANSO participated in the ICAO ATFM Global Symposium (ATFM2017). This symposium fostered increased awareness by governments, regulators, air traffic services providers and airspace users on the importance of ATFM. It also touched on the third edition of the ICAO Manual on Collaborative Air Traffic Flow Management(Doc 9971), which promotes the concept of capacity management and airspace design into flow management – something which CANSO strongly supports.

For its part, CANSO showcased its efforts and contributions in ATFM and A-CDM globally and regionally, advising it would soon be adding a Best Practice Guide to implementing CDM and ATFM to the CANSO publications library to aid implementation worldwide.

In January 2018, the CANSO Environment Workgroup (ENV WG) outlined CANSO activities with regard to environment and noise reduction at an EU Aviation Research Policy on Noise workshop. This workshop, organised by the European Commission, Clean Sky and the Innovation and Networks Executive Agency (INEA), provided an overview of the current aviation noise-related challenges, presented EU aviation noise research and identified gaps between needs and responses, with CANSO outlining its work in this area.
