Air traffic in the Middle East will have an additional 244 million passengers a year on routes to, from, and within the region by 2035, according to an IATA 20-Year Air Passenger Forecast.
In anticipation, air navigation service provider (ANSP) Saudi Air Navigation Services (SANS) will begin assessing the safety and efficiency benefits of deploying the Aireon space-based Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) service in Saudi airspace.
The two parties announced a memorandum of understanding (MOU) on 14 July 2017. SANS is to develop and analyse a concept of operations for ADS-B as an additional layer of surveillance.
