French air navigation service provider, DSNA, has chosen SITA’s safety and compliance management solution, the SITA Safety Cube, to improve operational safety and promote a strong safety culture. The system will be deployed in French airspace, which covers five air traffic control centers, 70 airports in mainland France and six foreign airports.
The International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), which is responsible for setting standards for air transport, has mandated that service providers implement “safety management systems” to proactively manage safety. Using the SITA Safety Cube, DSNA aims to further raise its safety management standards.
The SITA Safety Cube supports proactive safety management that focuses on identifying and mitigating potential safety issues before accidents or incidents occur, versus a more traditional, reactive approach during or after an incident. Moreover, the solution enables service providers to monitor the effectiveness of their risk controls by connecting operational security data with security risk analysis. It also enables more objective and reliable data-driven security management decisions.
DSNA manages one of the largest and busiest airspaces in Europe – before the pandemic in 2019, the French Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) controlled more than 3.2 million flights. In June of this year, air traffic in France reached 82.5% of pre-pandemic levels, and if this trend continues, there will be more than 2.7 million flights by the end of 2022. In the conditions of increasing airspace congestion, security is a key strategic factor for the modernization of airspace and the organization of air traffic of DSNA.
