Welcome to ANS

Air Navigation Solutions Ltd is a British registered company with its own board of directors and management team.

Having been awarded a 10-year contract for the future provision of Air Traffic Control and Air Traffic Engineering Services at Gatwick Airport, the company has gained the certification and designation required to operate as an ANSP in the UK market and provide ATM services at Gatwick. This was issued by the Civil Aviation Authority on 1st March 2016.

ANS is a wholly owned subsidiary of the DFS Group combining the reputation, capability and security of a well-established and respected global air traffic service provider with the flexibility, agility and value of a fresh business.

The wealth of experience and diversity throughout the team complements this inherent capability, and ensures service packages are tailor made and proportionate to each customer’s requirements. Whilst the initial focus is on ensuring a successful Gatwick transition in spring 2016, the organisation also has future growth ambitions, providing employees with additional career opportunities both in the UK and wider European DFS group activities. 

Our Vision is: To deliver outstanding customer service through innovation, flexibility and efficiency.


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.”
