Welcome to day 3 of Airspace World

I can’t believe this is the final day of Airspace World. Time has gone so quickly, which is a sure sign that the event has been busy and successful!

Airspace World is certainly living up to expectations. It is not just the size of the show that is impressive, it is the breadth of topics and depth of insight. The exhibitors and theatres are putting out rich content and solutions that will doubtless impact the future of our industry.

But the event is not just accelerating the innovative work being done in the air traffic management (ATM) sector but also providing visibility on all the projects in progress. Within the halls is everything you need to know about ATM and the incredible efforts to turn ideas into reality.

In short, Airspace World is fostering collaboration – the essential ingredient in a successful ATM industry. CANSO’s Complete Air Traffic System (CATS) Global Council is an example of collaboration in action. Today, in the Boeing Theatre, we have invited top aviation universities and research centres to present their research and innovative work and explain how it can contribute to achieving the CATS vision for future skies. Be sure to come along!

I’d also like to highlight the many other incredible theatre sessions taking place, all featuring industry experts. Among the many themes, sustainability features heavily. It is such a crucial topic going forward that it is heartening to hear so many discussions about reducing carbon emissions. This industry is committed to achieving net zero and the path to that starts now.

Finally, let me finish by thanking all those that have made Airspace World a huge success and established it as the highlight of the ATM calendar. Thank you especially to all of you that have made the effort to join us in Geneva. When our industry gets together and collaborates in the way it has done at Airspace World, I feel confident that we will deliver a safer, more efficient and more sustainable sky sooner rather than later.

Put Airspace World 2024 in your calendar now! I look forward to seeing you there!
