New committee for Asia Pacific region to enhance collaboration among air navigation service providers
The Asia Pacific region is stepping up cooperation in the provision of air navigation services to support recovery, meet growing demand and make air travel more seamless and sustainable. The Asia and Pacific (APAC) Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) Committee has been set up to enhance collaboration amongst all 43 air navigation service providers in the region. This is the first of such committees in the world. The Committee, which also involves the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) and the International Air Transport Association (IATA), held its first meeting on 17 – 18 April 2023 at the ICAO Asia and Pacific Office in Bangkok.
