London City Airport consultation: more flights over Wanstead


A consultation on London City Airport’s expansion plans is open until 9 September.

“Wanstead is facing the prospect of more flights from City Airport at weekends, in the early mornings and late evening. The airport argues only quieter, cleaner aircraft will be used during these hours. However, the aircraft are only significantly quieter on departure and within about four miles over the airport. So for Wanstead, that difference could be negligible,” said a spokesperson for campaign group HACAN East.
