Ma­jor Heathrow flight path changes

The Scotsman - - News Digest -

Heathrow is propos­ing the big­gest changes to its flight paths since the air­port opened in 1946.

Peo­ple liv­ing in parts of west Lon­don will find their respite cut un­der the plans be­ing put to a pub­lic con­sul­ta­tion, ac­cord­ing to anal­y­sis by anti­ex­pan­sion group Ha­can.

These com­mu­ni­ties are given half a day’s break from noise as the di­rec­tion of take­offs and land­ings is al­ter­nated at 3pm. This will be re­duced to one third of a day as part of mea­sures if a third run­way is built, Ha­can said.
