What a wonderful two days we had last week in the beautiful (if a little damp) city of Amsterdam, for our second annual Intelligent Approach User Group meeting.
Past, Present & Future in Hong Kong – Celebrating in the Year of the Rabbit and symbolising longevity20 October 2023
Just over fifteen years ago, NATS made its first foray into the Hong Kong aviation landscape, one of the world’s busiest and most dynamic regions. Since then, through a combination of collaborative partnerships and a dedicated team of aviation experts, we are proud of the innovative, safe and efficient solutions we have helped introduce to the skies of Hong Kong.
Automatic Dependent Surveillance communications technology has the potential to improve the accuracy of ATC prediction and queue management tools, generating significant safety and environmental benefits.
Our skies are experiencing a remarkable transformation with the rapid emergence of new airspace users like uncrewed, electric, and high-altitude aircraft. Amidst this dynamic landscape, NATS has been pioneering the use of analytics technologies to revolutionise the way we design safe, efficient, and sustainable airspace networks.
Capacity for aircraft landing at Schiphol Airport during high wind conditions has increased by 3 – 6 additional aircraft per hour, per runway thanks to Intelligent Approach.
There can be no doubt that India is one of the world’s most dynamic aviation markets. With record orders for new aircraft, there are now more on order than in the air, and with 100+ new airports in the pipeline and a record of 456,082 domestic passengers in a single day in May this year, demand to fly is now exceeding pre-pandemic levels signalling a new era of post-pandemic growth.
At today’s busy airports, every second counts. When punctuality is key and the value of departure slots is counted in millions of pounds, a little delay can add up to a large economic and environmental cost for airport operators, airlines, and passenger inconvenience. Recently, NATS has been working with European partners including London Heathrow Airport […]
West will transform the way UK airspace is structured above 7,000ft over southwest England and Wales, helping us towards the industry’s 2050 net zero target and modernising the route network to enable a simpler and safer future for air travel.
NATS is developing new concepts to improve ATM performance and environmental benefits. Sarah Dow, Advanced Tools & Concepts Lead, tells us more.
