What is being proposed?
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.Please note, LLA’s growth aspiration to 32 million passengers per year is a separate project being conducted by London Luton Airport Limited (LLAL), the owners of the airport.
