We also manage Scatsta Airport on the Shetland Isles. At the International Fire Training Training Centre located at Teeside Airport, we deliver training in a wide range of fire-fighting and rescue skills - it is the leading facility of its kind in the world.

In the US, we operate 54 air traffic control towers for the Federal Aviation Administration. We also provide air traffic engineering, meteorological services, rescue and fire-fighting services, electronic and electrical maintenance services and other airport support services such as catering and cleaning.   

In the Middle East we successfully rebid our contract in the United Arab Emirates - held since 1986 - to provide air traffic control and engineering services at the Emirates Area Control Centre in Abu Dhabi.
