Remarks of Jeff Poole at the ACI Airport Economics and Finance Conference 2014

1 April 2014

When people think of aviation, they tend to think of aircraft and airports because they are very visible. Air traffic management is, and should be, invisible – it is only when things go wrong that people notice and pay attention to ATM. This is normally when you experience a flight delay but right now ATM is in the world news spotlight because of the tragic mystery of the Malaysian Airlines flight. But ATM is also a very important part of the aviation value chain for you as airports – unless ATM efficiency improves and ATM capacity is allowed to grow, it will become a stranglehold on the future growth and profitability of airports. 

In these short opening remarks I want to look at: our vision of where we want to be in the future; how we are doing in getting there and evaluate the state of the ATM industry today; and what we need to do to get there.
