Upgrading our airspace will help improve the efficiency of our flights, allowing airlines to use more direct routes.

As a result of this upgrade programme, passengers could see an increase in the number of flights available to and from more destinations, helping to boost the UK’s tourism industry and give holidaymakers even more reasons to travel and from the UK.

Airspace upgrade could also mean that consumers have more choice when planning travel. More planes may be able to fly to more destinations, meaning that Britain could become even more connected to the world, providing more choice and value for passengers whether they are travelling for business or leisure.
