Safely Navigating the Industry Recovery- ATM and Airport operations during recovery
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to have an unprecedented and lasting impact on the aviation industry CANSO, International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Association (IFATCA), International Federation of Air Line Pilots’ Associations (IFALPA) and International Air Transport Association (IATA) are pleased to continue their second webinar series, focussing on the safe recovery to normal operations.
The fifth webinar of our series looked at the impact COVID-19 continues to have on airport capacity and infrastructure, specifically due to the number of parked aircraft. While traffic levels are low, there is a risk of increase in wildlife at some airports. Going back to normal operations may require additional support and training for all airport stakeholders. Additionally, COVID has motivated the expanded operation of some airspace users, including new entrants. Going back to normal operations will require special attention to those new types of operations.
