Airline/Air Traffic Services (ATS) Safety Forum

The Airline/Air Traffic Services (ATS) Safety Forum is an annual event that brings together delegates from international, domestic and regional airlines, air navigation service providers and other aviation organisations from across the Asia Pacific region.

The conference is designed to enable aviation safety specialists, safety managers, air traffic controllers, and pilots with safety portfolios to collectively share safety information and lessons learnt, to ensure an integrated approach to risk management on keeping our skies safe.

Over the course of two days participants receive presentations from industry representatives on pertinent safety topics and participate in open discussions and workshops designed to share information and experiences in the management of safety issues.

The success and reputation of the forum has been earned from the quality of speakers and industry-supported presentations. Each forum is themed to provide focused discussion and shared learning between airlines, aerodromes and air traffic control.
