ATAG has compiled a wide range of information, data and forecasts which are distributed through ATAG's publications and press releases. ATAG also organises highly-respected global events like the annual Aviation & Environment Summit - the only event that brings together key decision-makers from throughout the entire aviation sector to discuss major environmental challenges.

ATAG's objectives

ATAG's aim is to define common positions on infrastructure and environmental issues and to make expert and constructive contributions to the industry and governmental consultation process. By bringing together all air transport players worldwide and through the exchange of information and know-how, across all industry sectors, ATAG is in a unique position to make global industry recommendations. In so doing, ATAG plays an influential role in ensuring that aviation can continue to grow according to market demands and deliver the enormous economic and social benefits it brings to the world.

ATAG's activities

ATAG aims to ensure that the appropriate infrastructure facilities and procedures are in place in time to satisfy consumers' expectations. It takes at least ten years to plan, finance and build a major piece of air transport infrastructure such as an airport terminal or runway and sometimes nearly as long to bring a new air traffic control facility or system on stream.

ATAG aims to identify and resolve environmental problems and to accommodate environmental requirements in the industry's growth strategies. It looks for a balance between the environmental, social and economic effects of increased infrastructure capacity and, therefore, works closely with governments, environmental groups, planning institutes and the public to achieve this balance and to ensure that the right degree of commitment is made in time to meet mobility requirements.
