Flight Path Trials at Heathrow – update

I welcome Heathrow’s announcement last week that it will end the current airspace trials on 12 November, rather than run the trial through to 26 January as previously planned.

Heathrow also announced that it would postpone until Autumn 2015 the additional trials that were due to begin later this month.

Any permanent change to how airspace is used requires Government approval.  The Government has to fulfil its commitments under the Single European Sky project to modernise UK airspace by 2020.  I will continue to press for an outcome that lowers the noise impact on my constituency rather than increasing it.
