India's Project Ishan (ISHAN) – Careers Ready


Recently India has The process of consolidating four airfields (Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai) into a single entity spread over the entire country has been initiated.

related facts

  • Airports Authority of India (AAI) concentrated in nagpur 'Indian Single Sky Harmonized Air Traffic Management' (ISHAN) Expressions of interest have been invited to prepare a detailed project report for the initiative.
  • this step has been taken up in view of the significant increase in the growth of the aviation industryin which domestic passenger traffic is expected to double by the year 2030.

'Indian Single Sky Harmonized Air Traffic Management' (ISHAN) Initiative:

  • Purpose: Air Traffic Management (ATM) To refine and strengthen.
  • Significance: From this This will help in streamlining operations, increasing capacity and reducing congestion, efficient routing and reduction in flight time.which will benefit both airlines and passengers.
    • From a single continuum 'Flight Information Regions' There will be huge benefits in terms of safety, efficiency, user satisfaction, low carbon footprint and optimum manpower utilization.
  • Advance Challenges: Same for this project Technology implementation, changes in existing procedures, retraining of air traffic control officers and policy formulation will be required.
  • Need
    • Overall Restructuring: To make the most efficient use of airspace in terms of air traffic capacity, there is a need to holistically restructure the airspace route structure and area boundaries, which will benefit all stakeholders.
    • Minimizing existing gaps: To achieve the benefits of 'single sky harmonised' ATM, surveillance and communication gap areas need to be reduced, such as low displacement (minimum distance that aircraft must fly apart) and fuel-efficient flight paths.
    • An in-depth study: The implementation of ISHAN will require a thorough study of the current and projected air traffic growth and the challenges associated with managing the increased air traffic.

current arrangements

  • Flight Information Regions (FIR): At present, Indian airspace is Four FIRs (Delhi, Mumbai, Kolkata and Chennai) And is divided into a sub-FIR, each managed separately.
    • Integrating these FIRs under a single authority in Nagpur is expected to improve efficiency, safety and seamlessness in air traffic operations.

About Airports Authority of India (AAI)

  • A statutory body: It is a statutory body under the Directorate General of Civil Aviation, Ministry of Civil Aviation.
  • Establishment: It was formed by the Parliament It was created by an Act and came into existence on April 1, 1995 by merging the then National Airports Authority and the International Airports Authority of India.
  • Mandate: It has both land and air space in the country. It is responsible for the creation, upgradation, maintenance and management of civil aviation infrastructure.
  • Achievements: Calcutta and Chennai air traffic control centers by AAI's using indigenous technology Automated Dependency Monitoring System (ADSS) The successful implementation of It has established itself as the first country in the East Asian region to use this advanced technology.
