LONDON CITY AIRPORT SIGNS 10 YEAR DEAL WITH NATS
London City Airport has chosen to continue its relationship with NATS as its air traffic service provider for the next 10 years through a multi-million pound strategic partnership signed this week.
NATS has been the airport’s air traffic services provider since it first opened in 1987, but with the airport on the cusp of a major redevelopment programme in its 30th anniversary year, this is the first time the two companies have signed up to a decade long commitment.
Alison FitzGerald, London City Airport’s chief operations officer, said: “As we gather pace towards the start of construction on our £400 million development programme, which will enable a further 30,000 flights per year, we’ve taken the decision to continue our longstanding partnership with NATS to deliver the efficient, innovative and reliable air traffic services that are fundamental to the overall operation of the airport.

Mike Stoller, NATS' director for airports, said: “It’s a sign of the strength of our relationship and the value we place on each other.
The new contract, which includes air traffic engineering services, will also see the transition to a new digital air traffic control tower, details for which were announced in May.
Air traffic controllers will then manage all the airport’s flights from there in what will be a UK first.
Construction of the control tower is due to begin at the end of this year, with completion in 2018 followed by more than a year of rigorous testing and training, during which the existing 30-year old tower will continue to operate.
