Fiji Airports is this week hosting top regional aviation experts for the 32nd Informal South Pacific Air Traffic Services Coordinating Group (ISPACG) forum and Future Air Navigation Services (FANS) Interoperability Team (FIT) meeting in Nadi.
The meeting includes the United States Federal Aviation Administration, Air Services Australia, Airways New Zealand as well as aircraft manufacturing giants Airbus and Boeing.
Fiji Airports Executive Chairman Faiz Khan said the meeting provides an ideal platform to discuss challenges facing air navigation service providers across the region.
“The purpose of ISPACG is to promote a cost effective South Pacific Air Traffic Services aviation environment that is responsive to change, meets the needs of the aviation industry, is economically sustainable and maintains or enhances present levels of safety,” Khan said while opening the 32nd ISPACG meeting in Nadi.
“This meeting has air navigation service providers and aviation regulators from Australia, Chile, Papua New Guinea, Hawaii, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, Tahiti, USA and Fiji. This is the second international meeting that we are hosting. Fiji Airports hosted the Airports Council International Developing Nations Airport seminar earlier in the year.”
ISPACG provides an informal forum to foster relationships and to build networks with other air navigation service providers.
