Rt Hon Lord Lilley

    Peter Lilley is calling on the Department for Transport to include Luton Airport in its consultation on night flight restrictions at London airports. Mr Lilley has long been campaigning for Luton to be treated in the same way as the other London airports.


    Peter said: “The noise caused by night flights from Luton is particularly distressing for those affected. As London grows, air traffic is increasing. There were 4,897 night flights into and out of Luton Airport between July and September 2016 – 12% more than during the same period in 2015.”


    He added: “I shall be writing to the Government to ask why Luton Airport has been excluded from this consultation.”


    The Department for Transport launched a consultation on the night flight restrictions at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports – but not Luton – in an announcement last Thursday (12th January).
