This request has been closed to new correspondence. Contact us if you think it should be reopened.

Response to this request is long overdue. Although not legally required to do so, we would have expected National Air Traffic Services to have responded by now (details). You can complain by requesting an internal review.

Dear National Air Traffic Services,

I would like know the following information regarding air traffic controllers uniforms specifications across your sites including control towers and control centres.

Has any research been carried out to find out if controllers work better in their own clothes, casual wear or business attire.

Any information on meetings, memos or discussions regarding uniform or casual clothing for controllers including any staff instructions following this.

Across all the sites you control in the UK what if any uniform standards there are and why.

Yours faithfully,


Dear National Air Traffic Services,

I still haven't received a reply following my initial FOI. Can you please provide an update.

Yours faithfully,

Simon Feldman
