City Airport to increase flights

The number of aeroplanes passing low over the borough is set to increase dramatically in the next few years.

 London City Airport, which is based just north of Woolwich, will be increasing its flights to 150,000 a year by 2035, from just 80,000 today. The airport has also applied to end the currently imposed “quiet time” on Saturday afternoons and Sunday mornings.

 Responding to concerns, the airport stated that aircraft will be quieter in future and will have higher flight paths over the borough.
