Two airspace change proposals approved

We have published our decision on two airspace change submissions affecting aircraft flying over the Solent and Channel Islands and North Sea. The changes, requested by the air navigation service provider NATS, will affect commercial air traffic flying above 7,000ft.

Both changes are part of the Swanwick airspace improvement programme (SAIP AD3 and SAIP AD4) launched by NATS and managed from its Swanwick control centre.
