July’s traffic shows 0.6% decrease on previous year as NATS handles millionth flight

12 August 2010

Statistics released from NATS, the UK’s leading air traffic control provider, show that traffic in July 2010 declined 0.6% on the same month in 2009.

While there are some positive statistics, for example a 3.3% increase in transatlantic overflights, the overall picture for UK Flights is still negative.

Other highlights this month:

  • NATS handled its millionth flight on 1st July, just under two weeks later than 2009 when it was on 19th June
  • Farnborough Airport saw a 15.3% increase in traffic this July over the previous year, mainly due to the Farnborough Air Show which ran from 19th to 25th July
  • Oceanic Area Control Centre, which manages air traffic in the Northern Atlantic, achieved a new daily record on 21st July 2010 by handling 1,432 movements.
