Heathrow Airspace and Future Operations Consultation

8 February 2019

Heathrow is currently carrying out a public consultation on the proposed expansion of Heathrow airport. In October 2016 the government announced that a new North West runway at Heathrow is its preferred scheme for the expansion of airport capacity in the southeast. The consultation is taking place until 4 March 2019.

This consultation gives you the chance to have your say on three key areas:

  • Airspace change for an expanded Heathrow: how they will design future airspace and the local factors they should consider in different geographic areas when designing future flight paths.
  • Airspace change to make better use of our existing two runways: the local factors they should consider in different geographic areas when designing new flight paths for some arrivals on their existing two runways
  • Future operations for an expanded Heathrow: how they will operate three runways in the future, this includes managing noise; respite through runway and airspace alternation; directional preference and night flights.

Responses can be submitted online, via post, or at one of the consultation events.
