ATNS attends ATM global event

The Air Traffic and Navigation Services (ATNS) Company of South Africa is part of the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) member states and global Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) that are gathered in the Caribbean island city of Willemstad, to discuss the future of Air Traffic Management (ATM).
The four-day CANSO Global ATM Summit and Annual General Meeting (AGM) started on Sunday and ends today.
ATNS states that it is going to continue to implement measures that will reduce the costs of doing business in South Africa and in the continent. This is done by supporting CANSO’s vision of interoperability and seamless operations between sectors and countries, through being part of the continental collaborative efforts of working toward a single airspace, among others.
ATNS recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Swaziland, which is an example of regional cooperation and collaboration, said Thabani Mthiyane, ATNS Acting CEO. “In advancing safety in the region, we have implemented the very small aperture terminal (VSAT) satellite network which has provided and invaluable service in enhancing safety in the Southern African Development Community and the North East Africa (NAFISAT) region. The network provided by ATNS in partnership with another global organisation, namely the International Air Transport Association (IATA), provides a communication platform that allows for air traffic services (ATS) direct contact between countries and the digital transfer of flight plans and related information, which serves as a catalyst for the safety of flight operations”.
