According to Definitions in Article 2(1) and (10) of Regulation (EC) No 549/2004 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 10 March 2004 laying down the framework for the creation of the single European sky, air traffic control (ATC) means a service provided for the purpose of preventing collisions, and expediting and maintaining an orderly flow of air traffic; whilst air traffic management (ATM) means the aggregation of the airborne and ground-based functions required to ensure the safe and efficient movement of aircraft during all phases of operations.
Both are two vital sectors within the aviation industry – all management of arriving and departing aircraft is of course essential for the safety of both passengers and staff.
Furthermore, ATC/ATM has the potential to assist in increasing an airport’s capacity, therefore enhancing revenue generation and traffic growth. By processing flights more efficiently, an airport could increase its output; greatly enhancing its future potential.
Of course this cannot come at a cost to safety, so within this core topic International Airport Review details how airports, air navigation service providers (ANSPs), airport operators and airport authorities are balancing the need for stringent safety policies with the want to increase capacity, using new technologies, automation, updated regulations and revised management systems.
With today marked as "Freedom Day" in England with the ending of all lockdown restrictions, the Irish Aviation Authority has welcomed it as a sign of hope.

In the next instalment of International Airport Review’s exclusive series, the Chief Executive Officer of London City Airport, Robert Sinclair, explains how the long-term approach applied to every aspect of the airport’s strategy and decision making will be key in its recovery.
As the UK aviation industry tackles the challenges of today, it is also focused on the future and how it can build back better. For the industry and its recovery, airspace modernisation is an important piece of the jigsaw. Chief of the Airspace Change Organising Group (ACOG), Mark Swan, describes…
Following the apparent forced diversion of Ryanair Flight FR4978 out of Belarusian airspace, IATA has called on EASA to ensure that aircraft operations remain separate from politics.
Franck Goldnadel, Chairman of the Board of Aéroports de la Côte d’Azur, speaks to International Airport Review about the new Airport Operations Centre at Nice Côte d’Azur Airport, which is helping them to optimise resources and make air traffic more fluid.
Peter F. Dumont, President and CEO of the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA), discusses the changes to the National Aerospace System and the role of the air traffic controller that are already taking place in the American aviation sector.
Duncan Auld, President and CEO of the International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations (IFATCA), argues that the aviation industry needs to look at airspace design, defragmentation and procedures, and make substantial improvements to air traffic management, if it wishes to avoid a slow post-crisis recovery.
EASA and EUROCONTROL have jointly outlined recommendations to ensure that COVID-19 vaccine side effects do not interfere with the execution of any safety-related tasks undertaken by ATCOs and operational staff.
