NAVBLUE To Increase Vietnam Airspace Efficiency

Thursday, November 17th, 2016 

NAVBLUE completes deal with Vietnam Air Traffic Management Corporation (VATM) and Airbus to deliver Optimized Airspace Design of Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh areas to enhance safety and efficiency 

NAVBLUE, the new Airbus subsidiary dedicated to flight operations and air traffic management, announced today that it has finalized a contract to implement the ATM Cooperation Program in Vietnam to enhance safety and efficiency. The project will focus on the country’s two largest airports in Ho Chi Minh City and Ha Noi to realize gains from both an international perspective as well as from a flow-efficiency perspective between the two cities. 

With an anticipated air-passenger annual growth rate of 16-18%, the VATM and Civil Aviation Authority of Vietnam (CAAV) believe it’s necessary for the country to start building today procedures, technologies and skill sets that will support the ongoing increase in demand at its existing two busiest airports-- Tan Son Nhat International Airport and Noi Bai International Airport.

Said Mr. Pham Viet Dzung – Director General of VATM, “The increased air traffic capacity generated from this project will bolster the growing Vietnamese economy with its spin-off double-digit growth and intensification of air passengers, while respecting the environmental and social impact of this growth.” 

The project delivered over a three-year period and will include a comprehensive air traffic management analysis including a safety assessment, a redesign of existing sectors and designs making extensive use of Performance Based Navigation (PBN) and a change programme with training and cultural management components. 

Of note to the contract is its customized approach to a complex and challenging, multi-stakeholder project that sees each party agree on common goals that reward each stakeholder. This collaborative approach allows for the country to lay out an actionable plan that ensures truly sustainable future air traffic. The project will see collaboration between the country’s three top airlines Vietnam Airlines, VietJet Air, and Jetstar Pacific, Tan Son Nhat International Airport and Noi Bai International Airport in conjunction with VATM and the CAAV. 

Said the NAVBLUE Chief Commercial & Communication Officer, Paul-Franck Bijou, “This project has all the benefits that NAVBLUE, as a subject 
matter expert organization, likes to get involved with by helping our customers, airlines, airports and civil aviation authorities, to succeed in building today so that they may sustainably embrace the future of an increasingly mobile society.”
