It is potentially a good opening for residents according to the branch of Easirent Car Hire at Gatwick Airport, with the extension of the flight path consultations.
The flight path consultations for Gatwick Airport have been extended until midnight on Saturday 16th August, due to a technical fault making the website temporarily unavailable. The process was originally set to end at midnight Thursday August 14th, but a minor problem with Gatwick’s Airspace Consultation website meant it was inaccessible during the early hours of this morning.
A spokesperson for Gatwick Airport said “Gatwick’s Airspace Consultation website was unavailable in the early hours of this morning due to a technical issue. Therefore Gatwick will be extending the consultation period until midnight (00.00) on the 16th August to ensure anyone still wanting to feedback is able to.”
Consultation has been running for twelve weeks, aimed at gathering feedback from local residents and organisations. Participants are asked for their opinions on three possible departure routes, as well as night time respite options.
Gatwick Airport claims that all airports will be required to carry out this research by the year 2020. However the trial flight path which started in February, has seen residents of Warnham, Rusper and the surrounding areas protest at the constant stream of planes over their homes.
