Airbus to Help China Modernize Air Traffic Management

The Memorandum of Understanding announced Sept. 4 will assist in harmonizing China's ATM both globally and regionally, according to the aircraft manufacturer.

Airbus and China's Air Traffic Management Bureau have signed a Memorandum of Understanding to cooperate on modernizing the country’s Air Traffic Management System, including the latest ATM technologies, the company announced Sept. 4.

The MoU signed under the Civil Aviation Administration of China focuses on improving air transportation, capacity, and efficiency, and it will help in harmonizing China's ATM both globally and regionally. The implementation of ATM technologies and solutions will be done by Airbus ProSky, the Airbus ATM subsidiary.

Airbus announced four projects will start this year: air traffic flow management, airport collaborative decision making, Chengdu Airport capacity assessment and Required Navigation Performance Authorization Required to Instrument Landing System implementation, and performance improvement of the instrument landing systems at Beijing Capital Airport.

"We are pleased to launch the ATM cooperation program with Airbus today," said Wang Liya, director general of the bureau. "The four projects we have launched now pave the way for a broader cooperation between us and Airbus in the future. The implementation of new ATM technologies is the key driver for the modernization of the ATM system in China. The cooperation will help us draw on the experience of other regions to develop our future ATM systems, which will be more integrated with global systems."

"We are delighted to launch the cooperation program with CAAC ATMB in air traffic management," said Eric Chen, president of Airbus China. "ATM modernization is key to making air transportation more efficient. It is also key to help aviation grow capacity efficiently. China is set to become the largest domestic civil aviation market in the world. We are happy to support the modernization of China's ATM system, which will also play an important role in advancing China’s civil aviation development in general."
