Airspace in numbers

UK Airspace flights updated monthly

In April 2024 we began publishing a monthly news release that reports the numbers of flights we handle in UK Airspace (London FIR, Scottish FIR and Shanwick Oceanic FIR). Below is a dashboard that summarises the flight numbers. It includes total monthly flights handled this year and annual figures from previous years back to 2019 as well as Swanwick and Prestwick ATC centre performance and record flight days for airports. Full details on airport numbers can found on the CAA website.

If you are viewing on a desktop or laptop computer we recommend you click the full screen icon () for a better viewing experience.  Move your mouse over the dashboard and you will see the icon appear in the top right side.
