The Ninth Mekong Air Traffic Management Coordination Group Meeting (MK-ATMCG/9)

AEROTHAI hosted the Ninth Mekong ATM Coordination Group Virtual Meeting (MK-ATMCG/9) from 21 to 23 September 2022. The virtual meeting provides Mekong member States an opportunity to share their experiences and collaborate on Air traffic management (ATM) issues and other relevant matters in the area of Communication – Navigation- Surveillance (CNS) and Information Sharing.

The Mekong ATM Coordination Group (MK-ATM/CG) was established to ensure inter-regional harmonization, accelerate cooperative initiatives among its membership in order to enhance flight efficiency while maintaining safe, expeditious flow of traffic with the goal of providing seamless and harmonized air traffic management service. The MK-ATM/CG Membership include Aviation Regulator and Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) from Cambodia, Lao PDR, Myanmar, Thailand and Viet Nam, supported by partners including, but not limited to airlines and airspace users in States mentioned.

The meeting agenda includes Air Traffic Service Coordination, Airspace Management (ASM), Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM), Surveillance service development and ATS Operational Contingency Plan in which CAAT, Air Navigation Services Standards Department (ANS), presented an update on ATM Contingency Plan for Flights Transiting the Bangkok FIR (Issue 02 Revision 00 Effective date 30 December 2021), published on both the CAA Thailand and AEROTHAI websites.

All stakeholders in the aviation industry within Thailand reviewed the plan and participated in a partial exercise in June 2022 in which we found some rooms for improvement in the near future. However, the exercise was an overall success, with the Thai aviation industry recognising benefits of good preparation and coordination of the ATM Contingency plan. Therefore, Thailand encourages the Mekong member States to coordinate with all affected neighbouring FIRs in the development of the ATM Contingency Plan and for formal agreements.
