NATS lands 10-year contract at Cardiff

A 10-year contract to provide air traffic and engineering services and expertise for Cardiff Airport has been secured by NATS. It also includes the addition of services for MOD St Athan for the first time.

The contract award follows significant passenger growth at the airport since it came under public ownership in 2013, during which time NATS has also played a key operational role in delivering major events including the NATO Wales Summit.

NATS CEO Martin Rolfe said: “Cardiff Airport has gone from strength to strength, achieving more than 60% passenger growth, and we look forward to continuing to provide the airport with outstanding service, as we have done since the 1960s.”

Commercial director Guy Adams added: “The Cardiff contract attracted a number of bidders, so we are delighted to have reached such a positive outcome. Being recognised as a trusted supplier by the airport is a great achievement.”

Airport CEO Deb Barber said: “We were impressed by the bid from NATS, which is not only a reputable, trusted supplier of air traffic services but also stands out for technological innovation, operational excellence and engineering capabilities.”
