Hong Kong Selects Aireonflow for Air Traffic Flow Management

The Civil Aviation Department (CAD) of Hong Kong will roll out operational use of AireonFLOW for air traffic flow management, enabling unparalleled air traffic visibility and situational awareness to the Hong Kong air navigation service provider’s (ANSP) very busy airspace.

AireonFLOW provides air traffic management grade data using Aireon’s market leading space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance-Broadcast (ADS-B) service.

Combined with flight plan contextual information, AireonFLOW enhances prediction capabilities of flow management and other relevant air traffic capacity and demand platforms.

“The Hong Kong airspace is a perfect candidate for our AireonFLOW product,” said Don Thoma, Aireon CEO.

“With one of the world’s busiest airports and significant overflight traffic from countries throughout the region, the ability to accurately and reliably predict traffic flows is of the utmost importance.

“CAD Hong Kong is a leader in air traffic management and has been a strong proponent of space-based ADS-B since 2020, and we’re looking forward to seeing how CAD Hong Kong will reap operational efficiencies and safety improvements using our data.”
