NATS highlights population impact on air travel

Posted 31 March 2015 · Add Comment

Air traffic management specialists NATS, have released a video which looks at how the challenge in demand for airspace from regional population increases is being addressed for future air travel.

It shows how the increasing population in the Middle East is resulting in major changes in terms of how aviation experts are managing our skies above. With the Air Transport Action Group predicting the three billion passengers worldwide that boarded an aircraft in 2014 to double by 2032, aviation experts are urging us to act now to plan for this increasing demand for airspace.

The video includes the following:

  • John Swift (above), Director of air traffic management experts, NATS in the Middle East discussing the challenges facing airspace in the region
  • What needs to be done to tackle airspace problems in the Middle East
  • Interview with the CEO of Dubai Tourism and Commerce Marketing about growth in tourism in Dubai that has stemmed from aviation
  • Predictions for what future air travel will look like in 2050

Where will the world live in 2050?
Watch the video to see how our focus on air travel is changing to accommodate the population needs of tomorrow.

There’s little doubt that the Middle East is rapidly becoming one of the world’s fastest growing aviation hubs. With an ever increasing global population, the region is continuing to grow as more and more people pass through to live, work or visit.

Whilst this influx is creating more jobs and supporting the growth of economies, the rise in the number of air passengers will mean the focus of our air travel will also have to change.
