The two companies that run ATC in Britain and Spain last month launched a joint-venture company to develop a new air traffic management system for both countries. The new company, Sacta, will be owned jointly by the UK’s National Air Traffic Services and its Spanish counterpart, Aena. Sacta ATC areas will be phased in starting with the Canary Islands Center next year. The new system will later be introduced into the UK at Prestwick Center and then at Swanwick Center.
