Luton Airport: Significantly reduce night flights

    1. Petition by

      HALE, LADACAN, LANAG, SoS

Night flights at Luton Airport are currently unregulated and affect far more people than at London City Airport, which has a night movements curfew. Planes from Luton Airport are much bigger, and there are plans to almost double the existing 8,500 night flights per annum. There are more night movements at Luton than at Heathrow. The World Health Organisation links noise disturbance at night to serious health problems. We are calling for a significant reduction in night flights at Luton Airport instead of the further increase which is being proposed.

      No More Night Flights | Campaigning against any further increase in night flights at Luton Airport

      We are campaigning against any further increase in night flights at Luton Airport. Night flights damage health by interrupting sleep, and yet Luton Airport wants to double the number of flights between 10pm and midnight. We are calling on Luton Borough Council to apply planning restrictions which will stop any further increase and reduce night flights over time.

      The late night flights terrify me! I am constantly checking flight info and can't sleep until the last plane has taken off! This is affecting my health. I sit in tears most nights. They are so loud!

      I live under the flight path for Luton and more night flights will cause further disruption to sleep.
