Lufthansa’s new service to Frankfurt takes off from Liverpool John Lennon Airport, bringing the return of global connectivity for the city for the first time in over 10 years.
Liverpool John Lennon Airport has launched a 16 week public consultation regarding aircraft noise and is seeking views on its proposed Noise Action Plan.
The purpose of the Draft Noise Action Plan is to describe how, under the Environmental Noise Regulations (England) 2006, the Airport proposes to deliver on its obligations under the European Environmental Noise Directive.
The Draft Noise Action Plan sets out how the Airport plans to manage the impacts of aircraft noise over the next five years and the Airport would welcome comments from individuals and organisations on the Action Plan, how it could be improved and what practical additional measures others would like to see included.
The Draft Noise Action Plan is available to download from the JLA website http://www.liverpoolairport.com/environment/noise-action-plan-consultation-2009.html
The public consultation will end on 21st October 2009 and the Airport is requesting comments to be sent to the Environment Team at the Airport by post, via the Airport website (www.liverpoolairport.com) or by e-mail to [email protected] before the closing date.
Following the public consultation, a summary of the final Noise Action Plan will be submitted to the Secretary of State for Transport and the Secretary of State for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs before the end of November 2009.
A new service by PLAY airlines will connect Liverpool with Reykjavík and four eastern US cities.
A £2m investment is now underway to introduce new passenger facilities that will also create a further 200 jobs at the airport.
