Jersey Airport has become the first airport in the British Isles to achieve approval for the operational use of a digital remote tower. Following a testing period in recent months, including training for all air traffic controllers, this approval now allows Jersey Airport to control ‘live’ air traffic from its remote facility, located just south of the airfield – providing a contingency plan in the event of an evacuation of the main air traffic control (ATC) tower. This is the first-time remote tower approval has directly involved EASA, which is the Air Navigation Service Provider (ANSP) Competent Authority for Jersey.
