FerroNATS takes its place at the World ATM Congress

The firm took a stand at the event organised by the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO) and the Air Traffic Control Association (ATCA) at the IFEMA convention centre between 10 and 12 March.

FerroNATS, Spain's leading commercial air traffic control service provider, recently took part in the World ATM Congress for the third year in a row. This global event is the most important in the aeronautic sector and took place at the IFEMA convention centre in Madrid between 10 and 12 March.

The company used its stand to provide visitors with information about its services. Professionals from the various control towers managed by FerroNATS and from the company's head offices manned the stand in order to showcase a business venture that is entrenched in the Spanish market and is currently poised for international expansion. In its two years in operation, FerroNATS has established itself as a newcomer that is nevertheless delivering on its pledge to operational excellence underpinned by three cornerstones: safety, service standards and efficiency.

This year FerroNATS also took part in one of the congress's conferences, taking advantage of another opportunity to tell its story. The company's operational safety director, Raquel M. Martínez, gave a talk titled Managing safety in a changing environment on the Aireon Spotlight Stage before a large audience. During her talk she spoke about some of the company's defining traits as well as outlining the model used to facilitate the handover of control tower management, a model that has emerged as a success story that can be applied at any time and in any place.

As was the case in 2014, the third edition of the World ATM Congress was inaugurated by Spain's infrastructure minister, Ana Pastor. The congress provided the ideal platform for debating the key challenges facing air traffic management in the years to come.

The World ATM Congress is the sector's most important international trade fair. It draws the full spectrum of sector players - civil and military aviation industry representatives, government organisms and academic institutions - with the purpose of exhibiting the latest developments in the aeronautic arena and fostering networking opportunities. This year's event hit a new attendance record with nearly 7,000 visitors, 199 exhibitors and 313 conference speakers.
