Air Traffic Control boss urges airspace upgrade to avoid 20 minute delays on each flight

He told the Press Association: “Either delays will soar from effectively no delay or very little delay from an air traffic perspective right now up to millions of minutes a year, which probably means every flight being delayed by 10, 15, 20 minutes.

“Or we end up in a position of any additional capacity that we build in the country – no matter where it is – not being usable and not being of any benefit because we don’t have the infrastructure in the airspace to support it.”

Research by Nats found that delays could rise from around 90,000 minutes a year today to four million by 2030 if nothing is done.
