East Midlands Airport - Future Airspace

Be Part of the Conversation - Future Airspace

East Midlands Airport is beginning its consultation process as part of the Government's national programme to modernise the way UK airspace is managed.

All airports in the UK have been asked to review their current controlled airspace up to 7,000 feet and decide whether the routes currently flown by aircraft are the best they can be.

The aim of the programme is to increase safety and efficiency of operations, whilst also seeking to reduce carbon emissions and the impact of noise.

The first stage of this process is to work with stakeholders to determine a set of design principles – or rules – that we will use to govern the review of our airspace. This portal ends 7th October 2019.

A full public consultation starts Summer 2020.
