Air traffic control services at Gatwick Airport were successfully transferred to Air Navigation Solutions (ANS) Ltd at midnight on 29th February. The transfer of operation from current provider NATS is the culmination of a 14 month transition effort, the largest of its kind ever completed. Air Navigation Solutions will provide Air Traffic Control and Air Traffic Engineering services over a 10 year period at what is the world’s busiest single runway airport.
Managing Director Werner Spier: “The incredible effort from everyone involved in the transition resulted in a smooth and seamless handover of services. We are now looking forward to delivering value to Gatwick Airport and its customers in the coming years and providing the wider market with flexible, transparent and customer centric Air Traffic Control services.”
