CANSO members meet at the CANSO Asia Pacific Conference 2022 in Goa, India


Goa, India, 1 November 2022 – This week, Air Traffic Management (ATM) leaders from across the region are gathering in Goa for the CANSO Asia Pacific Conference 2022 (APAC) – hosted by Airports Authority of India. This year’s conference will run from Tuesday 1 to Thursday 3 November under the theme “Think Global, Collaborate Regional, Accomplish Local.”

Across the three days, delegates and exhibitors from the Asia Pacific region and beyond will be discussing and collaborating on the key issues that will help shape the future of Asia’s aviation industry and turn the Complete Air Traffic System (CATS) Global Council’s vision for the skies of 2045 into a reality.

As Poh Theen Soh, CANSO Director, Asia Pacific Affairs, stated: “With air travel recovering, it is now time to look beyond COVID-19 and to the future. Building on that CATS vision, Asia Pacific Air Navigation Service Providers can step up collaboration and tackle such crucial subjects as sustainability, and embracing and exploiting technology.”

Other topics on the programme include digitalisation and automation as key enablers in delivering our vision for future skies. Delegates will also be able to view first-hand some of the cutting-edge technology that will help modernise ATM in the region.

“Improving efficiency and creating a more scalable, sustainable and resilient system has never been more urgent for our industry” said Simon Hocquard, Director General CANSO. “I’m therefore looking forward to collaborating with colleagues across the region to raise the bar in ATM.”

“Airports Authority of India is very honoured to be hosting this year’s event as we strongly believe that this will not only benefit the entire region’s aviation industry, but also will enhance the civil aviation of India through the exchange of knowledge and cooperation”, added Sanjeev Kumar, Chairman, Airports Authority of India.

We are grateful for the support of our conference’s gold sponsor, L3Harris, and our silver and bronze sponsors, Laminaar, Aireon, Frequentis, Cirium, and The Boeing Company, for making this conference a reality.
