About NATS

Since it’s formation in 1962, NATS has acted as a pioneer of air traffic control. A progressive approach has established NATS at the forefront of the industry, leading evaluation to increase safety and efficiency as it moves into more technologically-driven times.

In 2001 the public-private partnership became effective for NATS. This saw the company undertake a journey as NATS evolved to best serve its customers: the UK regulator CAA and its UK airport owners. The part privatisation provided NATS with the opportunity to deliver even greater service levels in a number of essential areas, including:

  • Improved safety: zero serious safety incidents attributable to NATS in four of the past ten years
  • Reduced delays: NATS en route attributable delays have reduced from around two minutes average delay per flight to just 4.3 seconds over the last two years
  • Reduced ATM related aircraft CO2 emissions: In 2010 / 2011 we reduced customers CO2 emissions by 38,000t. This is the equivalent of 12,000t of fuel, worth £7.5m at current prices
  • Helped bring Single European Sky within reach: in 2008 NATS were the first in Europe to establish a working functional airspace block (FAB) with Irish counterparts
  • Invested more than £1bn in new technology and infrastructure: this is helping to improve safety, service, efficiency and productivity

Since then NATS has expanded its operations internationally, providing innovative solutions that answer their customers’ toughest challenges at a time where cost as well as performance have never been more critical.
