Changes to London Luton Airport Arrivals Consultation

NATS Overview:

The arrival flightpaths into London Luton Airport need to change, and you can help shape how.

Today’s airspace around London Luton (LLA) and Stansted airports is largely unchanged despite growth in recent years. The airports currently share arrival routes and the same two holds, which is unique in the UK for two such major airports. Any arrival delay or disruption at one airport can cause unnecessary arrival delay to the other, impacting the travelling public and local communities.

Our proposals for change involve separating LLA’s arrivals flightpaths from Stansted’s, and establishing a new hold for LLA, to reduce delays and assure safety for the future. There are no changes to Stansted’s routes.

This Airspace Change Proposal is co-sponsored by London Luton Airport Operations Limited (LLAOL), which is responsible for the low level arrival routes (below 8,000ft); and NATS, which provides air traffic services at the airport and for the wider air route network across the UK.
