NATS server glitch to be investigated by airline regulator

Charlotte Jee | Dec. 16, 2014
The UK's Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) is due to hold an inquiry into the failure in air traffic management systems at NATS (National Air Traffic Services) that occured on Friday 12 December.

NATS insisted it had "made changes" after last year's incident. Last January the agency awarded Lockheed Martin a seven-year contract extension to continue supporting its air traffic management systems at its Swanwick and Prestwick operations centres.

The new deal extended a five-year £80 million contract NATS awarded to Lockheed in March 2008.
