The air transport industry operates in a broad safety environment that encompasses Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs). Sharing of safety information between ANSPs, regulators and operators is a key component of reducing incidents such as runway incursions, level busts, communication misunderstandings and clearance errors.
IATA has taken many initiatives in this area, including the
Aviation English Language Solution to develop and improve English language proficiency within the industry, as well as the automated ground based Air Traffic Control (ATC) safety net toolkits.
IATA works with ANSPs, airports and regulators to address runway safety and the threat of airborne collisions.
Through the sharing of safety information, the aviation community will be better able to identify the potential for accidents and serious incidents before they occur. This proactive approach is dependent upon the integrated analyses of safety reports and timely action to address identified safety concerns.
