Whether skies are especially busy or not is almost irrelevant when it comes to safety. Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSP) have a duty to ensure that, from push back to landing, planes can travel safely in their air space at all times. And it is industry’s responsibility to support ANSPs in this critical task. It is its responsibility to not only provide them with Air Traffic Management (ATM) tools that help with traffic optimisation, but also guide them through a constantly evolving industry landscape.
The outbreak of Covid 19 has fostered endless debates about the future of the aviation sector. From the sector’s relevance in a more environmentally conscious world, to future traffic flows and adaptability, ANSPs have been, whether directly or indirectly, at the centre of discussions that could well reshape the aviation sector landscape.
Yet while Covid certainly exacerbated these trends, none of it is new.
Adaptability has been a key concern for ATM for quite some time. Beyond the necessity to adapt to traffic flows, far more unpredictable now than ever before, the pace of technological change has also been driving a need for more flexible ATM solutions for a few years.
Increasing concerns about the impact of the aviation sector on the environment have also been pushing for the development of greener aviation. As governments and customers become more demanding, the role of ANSPs in enabling this transition will become crucial.
As sector recovery and development meet in the aftermath of a worldwide crisis, the way in which Air Traffic Control Operators (ATCO) ensure sky safety will undergo significant transformations.
