The extension of the runway, opened in 2012, has allowed the airport to expand the offer of destinations beyond scheduled passenger traffic to Ireland and the Channel Islands. Inevitable delays also have an impact on passengers and airlines will do everything in their power to return them to their destination airport. This factor alone should in no way be underestimated. Another important consideration is that airports and aircraft noise are exempt from general noise legislation, which means that it is practically impossible to take effective local measures against noise pollution from aircraft or airports. Rochford is located directly northeast of the runway and covers part of the airport border. Aircraft arriving on Runway 23 will pass through Rochford en route to the airstrip. Connections are usually conducted north of the airport, as it is easier for our ATC to maintain an image on the aircraft during certain types of training, and there are sometimes flight bans in the south-east via the MOD site in Shoeburyness. One of Southend Airport`s key factors is that it has more land to develop than Luton Airport and is now able to support expansion plans capable of exceeding the 16 million passengers currently visible in Luton, with the runway extension granted in 2010. To ask the Secretary of State for Housing, Municipalities and Local Government on what criteria the agreement could be amended in accordance with Section 106 of Southend Airport.
Airlines will do everything in their power to ensure that aircraft operate as intended to avoid compensation, additional airport fees and crew costs. Following the granting of the building permit for the extension of the runway by 300 metres in 2010, an agreement was concluded between the airport and the municipal councils in accordance with section 106. . .
