AAI inks pact with Boeing on air traffic management

New Delhi: Airports Authority of India (AAI) and US aerospace major Boeing have joined hands to develop a 10-year roadmap for modernising air traffic management (ATM) in India. Funded by the US Trade and Development Agency (USTDA), the 18-month project will focus on communication, navigation and ATM modernisation.
This agreement aims to develop a roadmap for AAI to modernise the Indian National Airspace System based on global and local best practices to utilise airspace capacity, enhance communications and invest in navigation, surveillance and air traffic management.
Boeing will analyse current technologies and processes to identify efficiency improvements that can be implemented while maintaining a practical and safe airspace system. Boeing will also work closely with the Directorate General of Civil Aviation (DGCA), airlines operating in India, airport operators and other airspace stakeholders like the US-India Aviation Cooperation Program (ACP).
US ambassador to India, Kenneth I Juster, said: “India and the US have been strong partners in economic growth. This agreement between AAI and Boeing is a significant step in furthering collaboration on aviation between the two countries. We look forward to such opportunities, where both countries can utilise their expertise and innovation to develop blueprints for cutting-edge technologies for the future.”
