London City first UK airport to get remote digital air traffic control

Written by on May 20, 2017

London City is to become the first UK airport to replace its air traffic controllers with a remotely operated digital system. Instead of sitting in a tower overlooking the runway, controllers will be 80 miles away, watching live footage from high-definition cameras. The new system, due to be completed in 2018, will be tested for a year before becoming fully operational in 2019. It has already been tested in Australia, Sweden, Norway and Ireland. BBC
