Air Traffic Management

To promote efficient and safe airspace use the Air Traffic Management (ATM) system will shift focus from providing services that control to services that enable air traffic.

From controlling to enabling

New Zealand’s small aviation system means that our ATM system is already reasonably well integrated. However on-going improvements to modern ATM tools, combined with the new surveillance, information and navigation technologies facilitated by New Southern Sky, will ensure more efficient flow management and conflict detection – reducing operator costs and improving safety.

Changes in the system lead to the need to ensure that contingency planning is up to date and all participants in the system are trained and aware of the new environment.
