Liverpool airport launches public consultation on changes to air routes


Liverpool John Lennon Airport has begun a 12-week consultation with local communities and other airspace users about potential changes to flight departure and arrival routes.

The changes are being considered as part of the modernisation of the UK's airspace to deliver quicker, quieter and cleaner journeys by air in and around the UK and to accommodate future aviation growth.

The area covered by possible changes to flight paths of aircraft relating to LJLA reaches to South Lancashire in the north, Warrington in the east, Mid-Cheshire in the south and across to Flintshire in the west (see map above).

Consequently, the airport said it is keen that members of the public who might be affected participate in the consultation, which will last until midday on April 9.

Two open days will be held at the airport on Wednesday February 12 andSaturday March 7 with representatives from the airport on hand to discuss the potential impact of any proposed flight path changes.
