(VNF) - With 734,000 safe flights in 2016, Vietnam was listed among four global winners of the IHS Jane’s Air Traffic Control (ATC) Award of the Civil Air Navigation Services Organisation (CANSO).

The Service Provision Award aims to promote flight safety and efficiency. Vietnam is one of 161 members of CANSO.

The Hanoi Air Traffic Control Center, which has been operating for two years, was lauded for its high-quality system of air traffic management.

In August 2016, the Vietnam Air Traffic Management launched two one-way paths parallel with each other from north to south using advanced navigation to shorten travel time.

The north-south air route in Vietnam is one of the world’s busiest, with nearly 700 flights a day.
