The team at Car Hire Luton Airport think it is good that the airport are giving the local residents a fair chance to express their opinion over the flight path reduction proposals.
A promise by Luton Airport to consider pursuing further reductions to a flight path has been welcomed by campaigners fighting plane noise in St Albans. Initially Luton Airport bosses announced to look into cutting the width of a route over St Albans by one kilometre, from three kilometres to two kilometres. Campaigners would like this to be reduced further, with Luton Airport agreeing to look into this in more depth to cut up to another kilometre off the width.
The Government recently gave approval for Luton Airport to double passenger numbers despite local opposition. The airport also does admit planes regularly fly off the centreline of a main flight route and fly over densely populated areas of St Albans.
Luton Airport is consulting residents about proposals including having planes fly at a higher altitude and introduce navigation technology to enable aircraft to fly the centreline more precisely. People have until 9th July to comment on the proposed changes.
