The filial of Ferrovail, FerroNATS participate once again in the air traffic control sector conference, the World ATM Congress which takes places the 8th, 9th and 10th of March in Madrid.
FerroNATS – the joint venture between Ferrovial Services and NATS will, for another year running, take part in the World ATM Congress –the largest forum of the air traffic management industry which takes place at the IFEMA, Madrid. FerroNATS approaches its third ATM Congress with a significantly different mindset than in previous editions. It is already a well-known and respected name, with a proven track record for the quality of its operations and the determination with which they have embedded operational safety within the organisation as a basic strategic value. Half a million flights per year and 30 million passengers overseen from nine control towers make for impressive figures and are evidence of FerroNATS’ importance in Spain’s air traffic control sector. One out of every five flights taking off or landing in Spain is managed by FerroNATS. These figures are backed by service quality levels which are significantly higher than the average for the sector in Spain: 98.6% compliance with CTOT (calculated take-off time), and an improvement of over 11% in additional taxi-out time, to quote but a few of the most indicative results. In relation to safety, we can only highlight what has already been noted on other occasions: no category A (serious) or B (major) incidents, a runway incursion ratio 30% lower than the European average (ECAC area), and a report ratio which is two times the European average (ECAC area). Visitors to the congress can find out more about the services the company offers at the 890 stand in the pavilion 9.
