NATS Hits Two Millionth Flight Mark Earlier Than Last Year

NATS Hits Two Millionth Flight Mark Earlier Than Last Year

09 December 2011

NATS handled its two millionth flight of 2011 almost two weeks earlier than in 2010.

The milestone was reached on November 27 while in 2010 the two millionth flight of the year was not handled until December 9.

The year as a whole has shown an increase in air travel with a 2.9 per cent increase in UK flights for the year to the end of November when compared to 2010.

However in November 2011, there was a decrease of 1.6% in UK flights compared to last year, when significant snowfalls had already depressed those figures.

Traffic handled by NATS airports was also down in November, by 1.8 per cent, although Aberdeen recorded an 11.4 per cent growth partly accounted for by a new route to and from Frankfurt that started during the month.
