This hypnotically beautiful data visualization of Air Traffic in Europe was created from real flight data. It shows the air traffic which flies on a typical summer day and highlights the intensity of the operation in Europe – an operation which runs 24x7x365.
NATS (the UK’s leading provider of air traffic control services) and the UK are at the heart of the operation. With Heathrow as the busiest international airport in Europe, and Gatwick as the busiest single runway airport in the world, NATS plays a key role in ensuring air traffic under their control in European airspace is as safe and efficient as it can be.
