Responding to the Prime Minister's Ten Point Plan for a Green Industrial Revolution, Head of ACOG Mark Swan said:

“If we are to successfully deliver the UK’s ambitions for jet zero, as set out in today’s announcement, modernising our airspace must be at the core.

“By upgrading UK airspace over the next few years, we can start to eliminate inefficiencies, shorten journey times and reduce carbon emissions by up to 20% by 2050.

“While today’s announcement is encouraging, it is critical that the UK maintains its commitment to the airspace modernisation programme if it is to truly meet its jet zero and net zero ambitions.”
