NATS has grown from a UK-only to an international air traffic management provider. Its range of services and wealth of expertise help to deliver efficient and effective solutions to the challenges its customers in the aviation industry face.
Its strategies for continued growth rely on its innovation, partnerships and people. Statistical appraisal has shown that the strategies have helped to generate new business in the UK and 20 other countries worth over £495 million in 2011/12.
At a time of global economic recession, NATS has delivered ways to help its customers add value, reduce emissions and save fuel. In 2011, by implementing operational and procedural changes from the air traffic control centres, NATS enabled fuel savings of over 19,000 tonnes. This was worth almost £13 million and saved 60,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.
