UAE and Bahrain have reached a new airspace agreement that will reduce the increasing congestion in the skies. The new M600 airways will be the new ?highway in the sky? for passenger airlines; this portrays the efforts? undertaken by the government to accommodate the growing passenger flights to and from the country.
“The rapid growth and development of Civil Aviation Industry and air traffic movements between UAE and Bahrain was the main reason for the opening of M600″,” said Saif Mohamed al Suwaidi, the director general of the General Civil Aviation Authority (GCAA). “This airway would reduce traffic congestion, controller and pilot workload and enhance airspace capacity which will improve air traffic safety.”
With five flag carriers including the Emirates, UAE has the most congested airspace in the Arab region.
