IATA initiatives targeting Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) aim to facilitate a globally harmonized and interoperable Air Traffic Management (ATM). In collaboration with key industry partners such as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), we strive to influence global standards for a safer, more efficient and sustainable operational environment.
ATM & CNS Advocacy
We work with our members and stakeholders to advocate for the implementation of a globally harmonized and interoperable ATM. This includes collaboration with key industry partners such as the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) to influence global standards for a safer, more efficient and sustainable operational environment.
Radio Spectrum is a finite resource that is essential for safe operations and ATM. IATA advocates for airline requirements during World Radiocommunication Conferences (WRC) where spectrum allocations are agreed by States. Additionally, IATA engaged with ICAO and States to ensure protection of aviation spectrum from interference, for example for the roll out of 5G.
The most recent 41st session of the ICAO Assembly agreed to resolution A41-7 supporting ICAO policy on radio frequency spectrum matters.
Air Traffic Control (ATC) Charges
We strive for a justified, transparent charges system from ANSPs and all industry partners to secure a sustainable future for aviation. We also work with air navigation service providers across the globe to drive cost-efficiency improvements.
