Airbus is promoting the use of a common traffic management system in China, like the SESAR system in Europe.

The company will start a working group on the system, says Airbus vice-president co-operation and partnership with China, Marc Bertiaux.

Such a system would help co-ordinate the many flights in China, he adds.

SESAR - Single European Sky ATM Research - is a new programme that aims to better integrate Europe's air navigation services.

China, the fastest-growing commercial aviation market in the world, is also grappling with how to improve its air navigation services in an effort to boost efficiency and limit flight delays.
