London Luton Airspace Changes

As you may be aware, NATS (National Air Traffic Services) and London Luton Airport have enacted the Swanwick Airspace Improvement Programme, which separates the Stansted and Luton arrival flows and extends the flight path for the approach into Luton into airspace above the Cambridge area. This has led to an increase in air traffic over Graveley, with the resulting increase in noise.

The implementation of the Programme is now at its final stage, with the Civil Aviation Authority conducting a 12-month Post-Implementation Review examining how the airspace change has performed, and whether the anticipated impacts and benefits have been delivered.

Anyone with a noise complaint can use Luton airport’s TraVis system to make a report online, whether about noise in general or a specific noise incident. To report other environmental disturbances, phone 01582 395382 or email .
