FORT ST. JOHN, B.C – NAV Canada continues its aeronautical study in Fort St. John after suspended them in remote and northern locations.
The announcement was a part of the company’s decision to limit changes to services in Canada.
“Stakeholder engagement is at the heart of NAV Canada’s aeronautical study process. The valuable input we have received indicates that a balanced approach is warranted as the industry navigates the ongoing pandemic. We are proactively taking these steps to maintain a consistent level of service as the aviation industry and our many partners shift their focus to recovery,” said Ray Bohn, President and CEO, in a release last week.
The company says there will be no site closures at air traffic control towers or flight service stations across the country.
Last fall, the company launched 29 studies in an effort to safely streamline its operations, ensuring that air navigation services align with market demand.
The studies that are still in progress will consider other streamline options, including changes to hours of operation.
NAV Canada has overseen air traffic in Canada since 1996.
