Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation


Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation

CANSO – The Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation – is the global voice of the companies that provide air traffic control, and represents the interests of Air Navigation Service Providers (ANSPs) worldwide. CANSO members are responsible for supporting over 85% of world air traffic, and through its Workgroups, members share information and develop new policies, with the ultimate aim of improving air navigation services on the ground and in the air. CANSO also represents its members’ views in major regulatory and industry forums, including at the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO), where it has official Observer status.

Full membership is open to all ANSPs regardless of their legal status. This includes ANSPs who are integrated within government structures and departments. Members who are not separated from their governments are able to sign an article of membership which explicitly recognises that CANSO does not represent the national government of the ANSP's home state in any way.

The Associate Membership of CANSO is drawn from a wide range of companies and organisations across the entire aviation industry who are involved with the delivery of air traffic services. Membership offers them the chance to network both formally and informally with clients, and key decision makers across the aviation industry. Associate Members are also encouraged to lend their expertise to CANSO's work programmes and help it to continue to improve the delivery of Air Navigation Services.

CANSO is member of the Air Transport Action Group (ATAG).
