THE 32nd Informal South Pacific Air Traffic Services Coordinating Group (ISPACG) forum has brought together aviation experts from the region, the United States, Australia and New Zealand.
Hosted by Airports Fiji Ltd (AFL), the annual meeting also included participants from the Future Air Navigation System (FANS) interoperability team and global aircraft manufacturers Airbus and Boeing.
AFL’s executive chairman Faiz Khan said the meeting provided an ideal platform to discuss the challenges faced by Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) across the region.
“The purpose of ISPACG is to promote a cost effective South Pacific Air Traffic Services aviation environment that is responsive to changes, meets the needs of the aviation industry, is economically sustainable and maintain present levels of safety,” he said.
“This meeting has Air Navigation Service Providers and aviation regulators from Australia, Chile, Papua New Guinea, Hawaii, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, Tahiti, USA and Fiji.
“This is the second international meeting we are hosting.
“Fiji’s AFL hosted the Airports Council International (ACI) Developing Nations Airport seminar earlier this year.”
