PRD air traffic program completed


The Civil Aviation Administration of China has completed the basic planning and implementation of the air traffic control program in the Pearl River Delta region that will gradually establish a rational structure of the airspace, security facilities and smooth operation of the air traffic management system to meet the future development of the region. To solve the tight airspace in the PRD area, the CAAC, together with civil aviation authorities of Hong Kong and Macao, established in 2004 the PRD region air traffic control panel, which has recently completed the planning and implementation of the PRD region air traffic control program. Yang said on the narrow Pearl River Delta area, with no more than 200 km of distance, there are five large airports— Guangzhou, Hong Kong, Shenzhen, Zhuhai and Macao. In recent years, the five airports have recognized the necessity and importance of cooperation. He indicated that in the future, the CAAC would continue to strengthen contacts with Hong Kong and Macao authorities, according to the principle of "unified planning, unified standards, and unified procedures.” These include sharing of resources and information. Meanwhile, the CAAC would further expand the extent of the opening of the Guangzhou air transport market, increase the third and fourth traffic rights between Guangzhou and foreign cities, and increase the fifth traffic right stopover at Guangzhou. It will also encourage domestic and foreign airlines to increase long-haul and mid-haul international flights from the Pearl River Delta area, and increase air routes and flights from the Pearl River Delta area to adjacent countries.
