Civil Aviation Authority of the Philippines (CAAP) Director General Capt. Jim C. Sydiongco shared about the Philippines’ approach towards air traffic management (ATM) and navigation in the 21st century at the Civil Air Navigation Services Organization (CANSO) Asia Pacific Conference in Fukuoka, Japan that is being held from May 22-23 and hosted by the Japan Air Navigation Service (JANS).

The Conference, in which DG Sydiongco is one of the speakers, gathers over 120 senior air traffic management delegates from the Asia Pacific region and features panel discussion and technical workshops that address issues faced by the aviation sector and opportunities the region can benefit from.

In the event, DG Sydiongco gave a presentation on how the Philippines, through its Civil Aviation Authority, is navigating the changing landscape of air traffic management in the Asia Pacific. Aside from these, DG Sydiongco also presented on the prospects for Philippine air traffic management’s future.

CANSO, as the global voice of ATM worldwide, is organized across five regions: Africa, Asia Pacific, Europe, Latin America and Caribbean, and the Middle East, with a regional director and staff in each. CANSO Members support almost 90% of world air traffic, share information, and develop new policies, with the ultimate aim of improving air navigation services (ANS) on the ground and in the air. CANSO also represents its Members’ views to a wide range of aviation stakeholders, including the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), where it has an official Observer status.
