Metron Aviation, part of Airbus ProSky, will work with Servicios a la Navegaciôn en el Espacio Aereo Mexicano (SENEAM) to deploy its “Harmony” solution as a trial, to demonstrate the benefits Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) in Mexico.
Claudio Arellano, Director General of SENEAM and Paul-Franck Bijou, Chief Executive Officer, Airbus ProSky
SENEAM, whose vision is to engage all stakeholders and support airspace users and its end customers, not only wants to work on better flow management, it also wants to introduce the Collaborative Decision Making (CDM) concept.
Claudio Arellano, Director General of SENEAM highlighted that Airbus ProSky’s experience in ATM performance delivery and unique ATFM/CDM expertise was the natural partner to take care of this strategic project: “We know that Airbus ProSky is the leading company in Flow Management and we trust them to come up with the best solution for our National Airspace. Our objective is to ensure that airlines and their passengers benefit from this initiative”.
Mexico Air traffic experienced more than nine percent growth last year and will double by 2025. With such a forecast, ATFM is key to the ATM modernization needed and is recommended by ICAO (Block Upgrades B1-35 & B2-35).
Paul-Franck Bijou, Chief Executive Officer, Airbus ProSky commented: “We are delighted to support SENEAM for this challenging project. It is essential for Mexico aviation to take advantage of advanced technology to improve the management of arrivals and departures. Airlines will highly benefit from CDM with better operational predictability and reduction of airborne holding”.
The project will start in March and the objective is to validate the ATFM/CDM concept in 2014 with a final milestone and report early 2015 following a nine month proof-of-concept demonstration program.
