Confrontation over Night Flights at Stansted

Those campaigning against night flights are at odds with Stansted Airport and last week the airport and the Stop Stansted Expansion (SSE) group each submitted statements to the government, which is currently weighing the need for continued night flights for London airports.  They expect to introduce new rules as of October 2013.  The SSE’s statement, 10,000 words in length, requests the might flights be phased out over a period of time, reducing the amount of sleep disturbance experienced by the local population.

Martin Peachey, SSE’s noise adviser, said that it is well known that there is a health impact due to night flights disrupting sleep, but there is also an economic impact because those who cannot get a good sleep cannot function at their peak in their jobs and some of these people perform very important functions for the UK.  In contrast, Stansted Airport said the reduction of night flights would have a serious impact on the UK economy and it would increase energy expenditures as planes would have to be diverted elsewhere.
