Returning to the skies

Reimagining air traffic management for a post Covid world

After a tumultuous two years it feels like the aviation industry is finally emerging from the shadow of the Covid crisis.

But while the skies are getting busier, the recovery remains uncertain and uneven, especially in many parts of the world.

What role then, can air traffic management play in helping secure the recovery but also in future proofing airport operations as traffic levels begin to return to what we used to think of as normal.

Capacity, operational resilience and sustainability are all creeping back on the agenda and advancements in air traffic management, either in terms of airspace management or the deployment of new technologies, are almost uniquely placed to deliver against all those objectives, and usually for a fraction of the cost and time required for other capital investments.

But what should the priorities be and what challenges remain?

Ahead of the World ATM Congress, join us to hear about the latest developments in air traffic technology, why hybrid digital towers may be the next big thing, and how smarter arrivals management could save airports billions.
