Unveiling the shortlist for the 2019 ATC Awards
Jane's Airport Review is delighted to announce the shortlist for the Jane's ATC Awards 2019.
The ATC Awards - sponsored by Raytheon - take place at 3pm on 12 March in the Delegate Theatre during World ATM Congress in Madrid. Winners and shortlisted nominees will be recognized in the ceremony, which is free for all to attend.
The 2019 Jane's ATC Awards attracted entries from around the world and highlighted projects to improve airspace capacity, efficiency, safety and environmental sustainability.These are no easy achievements as flight volumes continue to soar and airspace capacity pressures increase. Our independent panel of judges faced a complex task and we thank them for their efforts. We look forward once again to announcing the winners during World ATM Congress.
Nominations are assessed by a panel of judges from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), Eurocontrol, the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers' Association (IFATCA), Jane's and the SESAR Deployment Manager.
