Air­ports Author­ity of In­dia (AAI) par­tic­i­pated in the World ATM Congress (WATMC) 2018, held at IFEMA, Fe­ria de Madrid, Spain from March 6-8, 2018. Now en­ter­ing its sixth year, WATMC is the world’s largest in­ter­na­tional air traf­fic man­age­ment (ATM) ex­hi­bi­tion and con­fer­ence at­tract­ing thou­sands of del­e­gates each year. AAI show­cased its achieve­ments and ini­tia­tives through a pav­il­ion in the con­fer­ence which was in­au­gu­rated by Shri A.K. Dutta, Mem­ber (ANS) in the pres­ence of other AAI del­e­gates.

While in­au­gu­rat­ing the AAI stall, Shri A.K. Dutta said: “Our par­tic­i­pa­tion in this mega event is pri­mar­ily to show­case our achieve­ments and ini­tia­tives as a ma­jor Air Nav­i­ga­tion Ser­vice Provider (ANSP) in the Asia Pa­cific re­gion. The plat­form pro­vides an op­por­tu­nity to learn about the emerg­ing tech­nolo­gies in avi­a­tion and thereby, be­ing able to meet the chal­lenges of rapid air traf­fic growth in this re­gion. A team of se­nior ex­ec­u­tives from the di­rec­torates of Air Traf­fic Man­age­ment (ATM), Com­mu­ni­ca­tion Nav­i­ga­tion & Sur­veil­lance (CNS), Hu­man Re­sources (HR), Cor­po­rate Com­mu­ni­ca­tions (CC) and Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment (BD) will en­hance their skills and knowl­edge to meet the fu­ture chal­lenges of the grow­ing avi­a­tion sec­tor.”

WATMC 2018

WATMC, op­er­ated by Civil Air Nav­i­ga­tion Ser­vices Or­gan­i­sa­tion (CANSO) in part­ner­ship with the Air Traf­fic Con­trol As­so­ci­a­tion (ATCA), brings to­gether the world’s lead­ing prod­uct de­vel­op­ers,

ex­perts and stake­hold­ers of avi­a­tion. It of­fers un­par­al­leled in­sight into the key is­sues in the ATM in­dus­try with a hand­son ex­pe­ri­ence in the lat­est prod­ucts and tech­no­log­i­cal in­no­va­tions along­side the op­por­tu­nity to en­gage with the new­est so­lu­tions to the chal­lenges in ATM faced by ANSPS. Pre­sent­ing un­lim­ited busi­ness and net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties, WATMC is the focal event for ANSPS and avi­a­tion thought lead­ers in­clud­ing other stake­hold­ers in the ANSPS and ATM com­mu­nity. By bring­ing to­gether the world’s lead­ing prod­uct de­vel­op­ers, avi­a­tion thought lead­ers, stake­hold­ers etc., WATMC pro­vides an ef­fi­cient cost and time-sav­ing plat­form for ANSPS, avi­a­tion in­dus­try lead­ers, gov­ern­ment rep­re­sen­ta­tives, man­u­fac­tur­ers etc. wish­ing to de­velop tech­no­log­i­cally in­no­va­tive avi­a­tion prod­ucts and air ser­vices on a global scale. This plat­form shall shape the fu­ture of the world’s air ser­vices.


In­dia has al­ready launched GA­GAN, the fourth SBAS in the world, which when op­er­a­tional shall pro­vide a mas­sive boost to air nav­i­ga­tion ser­vices across the Asia Pa­cific re­gion, par­tic­u­larly for In­dian avi­a­tion. AAI is also plan­ning to de­velop var­i­ous new Green­field air­ports which will im­prove air con­nec­tiv­ity and qual­ity of pas­sen­ger fa­cil­i­ties availed by air trav­ellers.

WATMC 2018 pro­vided AAI with a dy­namic plat­form to show­case achieve­ments and, at the same time, in­cul­cate the emerg­ing trends and tech­nol­ogy im­pact­ing air ser­vices. In the fu­ture, AAI aims to fur­ther its pres­ence in the global avi­a­tion sec­tor.
