Purpose of this change

This proposal is for a Permanent change to the notified airspace design, and the change level is TBC. The detailed process requirements are published in Part 1 of CAP 1616.

The Department for Transport (DfT) has stated that in order to accommodate forecast growth in the aviation sector out to 2030, significant modernisation of the airspace in the UK, specifically in the South of the London Flight Information Region (FIR), is required. The plan to modernise the airspace across Southern England is being conducted under a single multi-stakeholder programme known as Future Airspace Strategy Implementation South (FASI-S). As part of this programme, 16 airports located within the Southern part of the UK, including Cardiff Airport (CWL), have been invited to participate in the FASI-S programme and undertake individual Airspace Changes in support of the overarching FASI-S programme and the CAA’s wider strategy for UK airspace modernisation.

CAA response to Develop & Assess Gateway

03/03/2022: The CAA has completed the Develop and Assess Gateway Assessment and is not satisfied that the change sponsor has met the requirements of the Process up to this point. The CAA does not approve progress to the next Step. Further explanation for this decision is contained in the published document 'Develop & Assess Gateway Outcome - February 2022'.

In accordance with direction 5(1) of the Civil Aviation Authority (Air Navigation) Directions 2017 (as amended), the CAA is not satisfied this airspace change proposal up to this stage has demonstrated that it is in accordance with the CAA’s Airspace Modernisation Strategy (CAP 1711), including Iteration 2 of the UK Masterplan that has been accepted into it.
