It will help enhance civil aviation safety through improved training in terms of quality and effectiveness.
Mr. George Fok, PCCW Solutions’ Managing Director, said, “The market potential for air traffic control systems in China is huge in the wake of burgeoning air traffic and the expansion of airport infrastructure in recent years. With our world-class technologies and proven track record in running large-scale and sophisticated IT projects, PCCW Solutions will work closely with the Air Traffic Management Bureau to raise air traffic safety and efficiency.”
The Middle South regional bureau is one of the seven regional units of the Air Traffic Management Bureau of Civil Aviation Administration of China and is responsible for managing the airspace of Henan, Hubei, Hunan, Guangdong, Guangxi and Hainan provinces.
