We provide Air Traffic Control (ATC) services at 13 UK airports. At Cardiff
Airport we provide tower, approach and lower airspace radar services.
This is an ATC service provided for the airport
and surrounding airspace. The controllers will
look out of the tower windows, as well as at the
ATC equipment, to give aircraft clearance to taxi,
take-off and land.
This is a radar-based control service located in
the lower part of the tower. Incoming aircraft are
managed from approximately 40 miles away
from the aerodrome, generally under 10,000ft.
LARS - Lower Airspace Radar Service for aircraft
flying outside controlled airspace or wishing to
transit our controlled airspace.
