Asia & Pacific Regional Sub-Office (APAC RSO)
Welcome to the ICAO Asia and Pacific (APAC) Regional Sub-Office (RSO)
The ICAO Council, at the sixth meeting of its 194th Session held on 14 November 2011, agreed to establish a Regional Sub-Office (RSO) of the Asia and Pacific (APAC) Office, aiming to enhance support to States in the APAC Region.
Inaugurated on 26 June 2013, the ICAO APAC RSO has the mandate to improve airspace organization and management to maximize Air Traffic Management (ATM) performance across the APAC Region and will not duplicate the role of the existing APAC Office in Bangkok.
The APAC RSO engages in project-oriented activities aiming to support States in their air traffic management enhancement projects. The project areas which are in scope of the RSO activities will include but not limited to Airspace Organization and Management (AOM), Collaborative Decision Making (CDM), Air Traffic Flow Management (ATFM), Flexible Use of Airspace (FUA) and Performance-Based Navigation (PBN).
The APAC RSO pledges to join hands with ICAO APAC Member States, international organizations and industry partners in advancing air traffic management in the Region.
