Airspace Changes – West Airspace Deployment

The UK will introduce the systemisation of airspace across the southwest of England and most of Wales. In the design a new systemised route structure has been created between 7000ft and 24,500ft, with Free Route Airspace (FRA) established above 24,500ft (FL245).  The new airspace designs, which result in some raised bases and increase some volumes of controlled airspace, will be established under AIRAC schedule 03/2023, notified through a double cycle, to be effective on 23 March 2023. Further details can be found in UK AIC Y 013/2023 and the UK AIP.
