Step 2a : Develop & Assess

Purpose of this change

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.
