Farnborough Airport Airspace Strategy


The objective of airspace change is to create a new operating environment which offers all airspace users predictability and consistency of operation.

Creating a known air traffic control (ATC) environment will assist the airport in catering for an increasing number of air transport movements and do so in a way which enhances efficiency and safety for many airspace users.

Farnborough Airport previously operated within Class G (uncontrolled) airspace, which was shared with other airports, gliding sites and general aviation activities. Airspace Change changed that with the intention to improve the approach and departure environment to the benefit of airport traffic and other airspace users.

Airspace Change Implementation Date

Farnborough Airspace Change was implemented on 27th February 2020.
