IFATCA Conference

19-21 October 2017, Rydges Hotel, Wellington

NZALPA is proud to host this year’s Asia-Pacific International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations (IFATCA) conference, which will bring together more than 100 air traffic controllers (ATCs) to discuss important issues that affect air safety and efficiency.

IFATCA represents more than 50,000 professional ATCs from more than 100 countries. The increase in air traffic in the Asia Pacific region is forecast to be significantly higher than any other region in the world over the next 10 years, and the industry needs to establish ways to cope together.

The conference will include representatives from the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), who will discuss wider international issues affecting the industry and profession.

Key speakers and discussion topics will be announced in the coming months in Uplink and online.

Go to the IFATCA Conference website.
