The Need for ATMS

HIAL already provide lifeline services and contribute to the social and economic prosperity of our local communities, but we need to ensure that our airports and aviation services are maintained and that lifeline services are future-proofed.

HIAL must transform our air traffic management system to meet our operational needs now and into the future, because:

  • The air traffic control industry is experiencing staff retention and recruitment challenges
  • Our air traffic management infrastructure is ageing and our operating model requires modernisation
  • We need to be trained, equipped and ready to meet changing legislation and regulatory requirements within the aviation industry
  • We must ensure best value and operate in the most efficient but effective way.
