Today expected to see the highest number of aircrafts in the British Sky according to the air traffic controller. Though the number 8,800 considered as a record, the director of the National Air Traffic Service (NATS) sees this as a warning that the UK air space has reached its limits.
Apart from that, 770,000 planes are expected to fill the UK’s skies this summer
Shadow transport secretary Andy McDonald said that the Government must listen to what NATS and the industry warns about, and take action to protect and modernise UK airspace. At the same time the experts warn that roads could be even more packed than usual, with many families choosing to holiday in the UK because of the impact of Brexit.
The Transport secretary has responded that the state want to create opportunities for people of the country by building on the great industry already the country has. And he further mentioned that the new aviation will look beyond and set out a comprehensive long-term plan for UK Aviation.
