Considered options

Prefered options

Our proposed flight path: B5 and B2.

Our preferred design option is to keep the existing route B5 and to add parallel route, B2. To determine this decision we tabled all of the options against our criteria.

Objectives: noise impact on fewest people below 7000ft, lowest CO2 impact


What's your view?

We have considered all of the information available including feedback from the initial consultation process when designing our flight path options. Our second consultation is asking communities, organisations and elected officials if they agree with our preferred flight path options. If these changes might affect you, we would like to hear your views.  The principal question we’re asking is

"Do you agree with our preferred flight path option and why? If you disagree please let us know which other viable option you would prefer and why?" We are asking this question for each of the proposed flight paths.
