Signing Ceremony between Myanmar & Japan for the Grant Aid

Myanmar and Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) regarding Japanese Grant Aid Project for the improvement of aircraft surveillance system in Myanmar was held at the DCA headquarter in Yangon on 29 April 2019.

Aiming to effectively and efficiently manage growing air traffic and to enhance surveillance capability, the Japan Civil Aviation Bureau (JCAB), a division of the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism (MLIT) conducted the survey program in December 2016 on the modernization of Air Traffic Control Systems in Myanmar at 3 major international airports located respectively in Yangon, Mandalay and Nay Pyi Taw.

In accordance with the timeline of the project implementation, Airport Surveillance Radar (ASR) consisting of both Primary Surveillance Radar / Secondary Surveillance Radar (PSR / SSR) will be installed in Yangon and Mandalay, and SSR in Nay Pyi Taw. Subsequently, Multi Sensor Data Processing System (MSDPS), Voice Communication Switching System (VCSS) & Approach Radar Simulator (SIM) System will also be installed at New Air Traffic Management Center (ATMC) in Yangon phase by phase.

Upon the completion of successful implementation of this project, it will be helping make air traffic control operations safer and more efficient that improve airspace efficiency, enable higher levels of service to airspace users and reduce air traffic controllers' workload.

DCA Myanmar thanks Japan for its assistance rendered, in particular, to improve the aviation surveillance capability of Myanmar for the benefit of all stakeholders within Myanmar and beyond.

Capacity building exercise for CO2 mitigation from aviation

The EU-South East Asia Aviation Partnership Project is funded by the European Union and implemented by the European Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) to enhance political, economic and environmental partnership between the EU and South East Asia in the domain of civil aviation.

Compared with other modes of transport, the impact of aviation on the environment is still relatively moderate in aggregate terms. However, aircraft noise exposure and aircraft engine emissions are expected to increase further over the next decades as traffic continues to grow. In addition, the specific impact of the greenhouse gas emissions from aircraft engines is unlike other industries in that these emissions take place in the upper reaches of the atmosphere.

Activity 3.1.7 under The EU-South East Asia Aviation Partnership Project – “Workshop on Myanmar State action plan - Capacity building exercise for CO2 mitigation from international aviation” was held in Air Traffic Management Center, Department of Civil Aviation, Yangon, Myanmar on 31 October 2018.

DCA officials, representatives from airlines and other relevant stakeholders attended the workshop. Broad spectrum of issues related to the Development of Environmental Policies and Regulatory Frameworks, State Action Plan, Identification of assistance needs, List of selected mitigation measures, Capacity building in the preparation and implementation of the new ICAO CORSIA agreement (Carbon offsetting and reduction scheme for international aviation) were discussed during the workshop.

Myanmar DCA would like to thank EASA for the assistance rendered.

Myanmar DCA will continue working with ICAO, EASA and other relevant international bodies in strengthening our climate actions towards delivering low carbon mobility and securing a sustainable future for our peoples.
