NATS is part of the SESAR project – what does this mean for air traffic control in the UK?
NATS is fully committed to the SESAR programme and we are a leading part of the Joint Undertaking that will move it forward. We very much want to be at the forefront of moves towards the Single European Sky and will do all we can to help move SESAR forward to help achieve that.
SESAR is the technical component of Single European Sky initiative to harmonise air traffic control across European airspace. By 2020, air traffic will have doubled and SESAR’s aim is to ensure that, using interoperable systems, it is controlled even more safely, with minimal delay and with fewer emissions. We are working with the air navigation service providers for France, Spain, Germany, Italy and Sweden.
