Aircraft noise from Gatwick night flights

I very much welcome the Government’s new consultation on night flights from Gatwick Airport. The initial proposals support the noise quota being reduced by 20% over 5 years whilst also placing a cap on the number of night flights to current levels, meaning no increase in flight numbers. This will be a strict limit which the airport cannot exceed.

I would encourage you to respond to the consultation so that affected local areas send a strong message about night flights. You can directly respond through the following link: night-flight-restrictions-at-gatwick-heathrow-and-stansted
