Project ISHAN

Project ISHAN:

India has started the process of unifying its four airspace regions under Project Indian Single Sky Harmonized Air Traffic Management at Nagpur (ISHAN).

  • This initiative is expected to enhance air traffic management, benefiting airlines and passengers by making operations more efficient and safer.
  • Challenges include technological implementation, process changes, and retraining of staff.
  • Currently, Indian airspace is divided into 4 FIRs:
    • Mumbai, Kolkata, Delhi, Chennai, and a sub-FIR in Guwahati, each managed separately.
  • The Airports Authority of India (AAI) has called for expressions of interest to prepare a detailed project report for the Indian Single Sky Harmonized Air Traffic Management (ISHAN) initiative, centered in Nagpur.
  • This consolidation is expected to streamline operations, enhance capacity, and alleviate congestion, benefiting both airlines and passengers.
