Wednesday, July 4th, 2007

Flight times to Europe should be shortened by up to an hour from Thursday (July 5, 2007) when Aerothai launches a new regional air traffic flow management system.

The Bay of Bengal Cooperative Air Traffic Flow Management System (BOBCAT) will cut travelling time for west-bound flights departing from South Asia and Southeast Asia, Priti Hetrakul, president of Aeronautical Radio of Thailand (Aerothai), said yesterday. The BOBCAT system was designed to ease air traffic congestion over Afghanistan between the hours of 3am and 6.59am.

It reorganises the times flights should enter Afghanistan airspace, and at what altitude. It also designates a suitable flight path, reducing the need for detours.
