CANSO warns of potential lack of airspace in Middle East

1-Nov-2010 10:51 AM

CANSO Director General Graham Lake announced the rapid growth of airlines in the Middle East region might lead to an “airspace crunch” (The Peninsula, 31 October 2010). According to a CANSO report, more than 400 aircraft will be delivered to Gulf-based airlines in the near future, which will strain the already-congested Middle Eastern airspace. Mr Graham stated that airlines, regulators and politicians must work together and with urgency to avoid a capacity crunch.
