AS the demand for air transportation services increases, efforts are being put into finding solutions to safely increase capacity, efficiency and access to terrain-challenged airports.

According to Civil Aviation Authority of Fiji air traffic management inspector Ilaitia Tabakaucoro, the global aviation challenges prompted the three-day Asian Pacific International Civil Aviation conference, held at the Tanoa International Hotel in Nadi.

"The Performance-Based Navigation workshop, as an ICAO Special Implementation Project, is also to assist Pacific Island states develop a PBN plan," he said.
