International Air Transport Association (IATA) director general Pierre Jeanniot says that air traffic control services (ATC) would be better delivered by businesses than state-run organisations. Speaking at last month's Financial Times World Aerospace & Air Transport Conference in London, UK, Jeanniot said: "The [imminent] privatisation/corporatisation of [the UK] National Air Traffic Services is an important event, and achieving this successfully will set a good example not only for other European ATCs but also around the world."
