Hong Kong International Airport will deploy the Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM) system from Airbus ProSky to improve air traffic flows. 
The system, Harmony for ANSPs (Air Naviagion Service Provider), will be implemented at the airport on a trial basis. The tool allows users to exchange flight data with a common view of air traffic flow operations. The Hong Kong Civil Aviation Department (CAD) is looking to improve operational efficiency, by using the Harmony of ANSPs to implement air traffic management initiatives that align demand with available capacity. 
Paul-Franck Bijou, CEO of Airbus ProSky, calls Hong Kong one of the "busiest areas in the Asia Pacific region."

"With this volume, which continues to grow at a rapid pace, Hong Kong is exploring the application of cutting-edge technology for Air Traffic Management," said Bijou.
