LONDON, March 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --

Last week Air Traffic Management (ATM) professionals and stakeholders from 107 countries descended upon Amsterdam for the 23 rd ATC Global event.

The truly global representation, with participants present from each continent in attendance, allowed for frank discussions around developing new safer, fuel-efficient and cost-effective aircraft operations to take place whilst innovative solutions on tackling global issues were shared.

At the ATC Global 2013 conference, speakers painted very different views of the achievements and challenges facing air navigation services providers around the world. Some of the highlights included Mukesh Chand Dangi, General Manager (ATM) Airports Authority of India, who gave details of the Indian Ocean Strategic Partnership to Reduce Emissions (INSPIRE) programme where direct city-pair flights have operated with an average fuel saving per flight (per sector) of 212 kg for the last year or so. Juan Ayón Alfonso, air navigation sub-director at IACC (Instituto de Aeronáutica Civil de Cuba), the Cuban ANSP, spoke of plans to acquire new systems to satisfy the implementation of CAR/SAM ANP and Mauricio Boekhoudt, Strategic Advisor for Aruba Airport Authority, spoke of the work to introduce ASBU Block 0 in the region - implementation of PBN and air traffic services inter-facility data communication (AIDC).

The supplier community was also out in force with more than 150 exhibitors from 28 countries represented including Thales, NITA, WIDE,  Northrop Grumman, Intelcan, Azimut, Leosphere, Vaisala, Moog Fernau, Barco, Guntermann & Drunck, Era A.S, Comsoft, Korea Airports Corp., Tern Systems, Rohde & Schwarz, Nanjing LES Information Technology, Nanjing NRIET, VNIIRA and many others.

One of the largest delegations to attend ATC Global this year was from China, with over 70 senior ATM professionals from the CAAC ATMB, the Hong Kong CAD and all regional Chinese ATM Bureaus present. Mr. Zhao Fan, Director at the Technical Center CAAC ATMB, commented after his second ATC Global visit, "It has been extremely important for us to attend ATC Global to engage with other ATM professionals from across the world, meet with technology suppliers and participate in key discussions on the future of the industry and the part China will play over the next few years."

In addition, for the 3 rd year ATC Global ran its Hosted Buyer Programme that proactively sources international buyers who are actively procuring ATM technologies and solutions. Participants this year hailed from  ANSPs and Civil Aviation Authorities from more than 17 countries including Myanmar, Colombia, COCESNA, Afghanistan, Lebanon, Vietnam, Peru, Argentina, Uruguay, Algeria, Morocco, Zimbabwe, Nepal, Cuba, Bolivia, Egypt, Rwanda alongside a host of European countries.

"I really appreciate the opportunity I was given to participate in the ATC Global 2013, this was a unique chance for us to get closer to the manufacturers and obtain information that is vital for the development of our countries. The organization of the whole event was impeccable and I would like to congratulate the team on a job well done," Oscar Gutierrez Urresti from SABSA, who this year took part in the ATC Global Hosted Buyer Programme, commented.

For 23 years ATC Global has been the premium meeting place for the entire ATM community, bringing together the full supply chain and helping to form new business partnerships between buyers and sellers. ATC Global 2013 once again confirmed the annual event as the global place to do business.
