ATNS recognized for upholding high aviation safety standards

Air Traffic and Navigation Services (ATNS) has been announced as the most improved Air Navigation Services Provider (ANSP), based on the latest measurement of its Safety Management System’s level of maturity. 

The announcement follows a benchmarking exercise undertaken by several ANSP’s around the globe, at a CANSO Safety conference held in Banff Canada late last year. It was a closed session attended by ANSP’s who agreed to have their data identified.  

CANSO conducts benchmarking exercises on an annual basis and encourages ANSP’s to participate.  ATNS takes part in this benchmarking exercise by submitting a completed survey.  The process to adjudicate the best performing entity occurs when all participating ANSPs’ data is presented and compared. 

CANSO is a global voice for Air Traffic Management (ATM).  Its overall aim is to promote safe and efficient air navigation service provision.  This is done through the development of networks of ANS experts to enable information exchange to promote best practice.  The exchange of information and collaboration between members also help develop standards which can be adopted by the different states which can be used to improve their service such as the CANSO standard of excellence which has been developed based on ICAO Annex 19 and is used to measure the level of maturity of an organisation’s Safety Management System.
