Exeter Airport - Airspace Change Proposal.
Changes to airspace rules around Exeter Airport are being proposed to take account of the airport’s continued growth.
Passenger numbers at the airport have increased by 20% in the last five years and total aircraft movements are forecast to grow.
The changes would re-design the airspace around Exeter Airport and introduce new rules, maintaining safety for all air users and allowing for more efficient handling of aircraft. This could help achieve more continuous descents and climbs for inbound and outbound commercial aircraft, for example, reducing noise, fuel consumption and emissions.
The airport has drawn up its proposals in consultation with a wide range of aviation users to take account of their varied needs, and is now consulting formally on the proposals. The consultation period ends on 9th June 2017.
Exeter Airport will consider making changes to its proposals once all responses have been analysed. It will then submit a final scheme for consideration by the Civil Aviation Authority.
