We provide Air Traffic Control (ATC) services at 13
UK airports. At London Luton Airport we provide
tower and engineering 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.
An engineering team, based at the airport, are
responsible for maintaining air traffic control
services, such as radar and the Instrument
Landing System (ILS). As well as monitoring
things the engineering team are responsible
for carrying out preventative and corrective
maintenance on a daily basis.
The Operation: 2017
The tower was opened in 1995. NATS has been
providing an ATC service at Luton since 2000.
