IATA Advises Airlines Be Consulted Before New ANSPs Technology Deployment

The Manager, Safety and Flight Operations- ATM Infrastructure Focus, West and Central Africa at International Air Transport Association (IATA), Yassine El Charkaoui has said that airlines need to be informed and consulted at an early stage about any potential future charges which could be borne by them as a result of the deployment of new technologies.

Speaking during a recent visit to the Nigerian Airspace Management Agency (NAMA) headquarters in Lagos, El Charkaoui noted that while ANSPs are implementing or embarking on new initiatives, there is the need to consider the position of IATA to ensure that navigational aids on ground match what is in the air in terms of aircraft capabilities and onboard equipment.

He however added that the onus was on the airlines to provide their future plans to ANSPs in terms of fleet expansion, type of aircraft to be acquired and timelines.
