ACP Consultation

Airspace Change Proposal

Consultation Process Closed

Changes to airspace rules around Exeter Airport are being proposed to take account of the airport’s continued growth.

The airport has drawn up its proposals in consultation with a wide range of aviation users to take account of their varied needs. 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.

Consultees have been able to express their viewpoints during the consultation period of 13 weeks which closed on 9th June 2017.

During this time all consultee responses received were recorded and Exeter Airport will consider making changes to its proposals once all responses have been analysed. Constructive feedback will inform the development of the ACP, ensuring that any positive impact is enhanced and negative impact is minimised.

Exeter Airport will consider making changes to its proposal then submit a final scheme for consideration by the Civil Aviation Authority.
