East Midlands Airport Future Airspace Programme

East Midlands Airport Future Airspace Programme

East Midlands Airport is carrying out an important piece of work as part of the Government's national programme to modernise the way UK airspace is managed.

All airports in the UK have been asked to review their current controlled airspace up to 7,000 feet and decide whether the routes currently flown by aircraft are the best they can be.

The aim of the programme is to increase safety and efficiency of operations, whilst also seeking to reduce carbon emissions and the impact of noise.

The first stage of this process is to work with stakeholders to determine a set of design principles – or rules – that we will use to govern the review of our airspace.

You can find out more about East Midlands Airport's Future Airspace Programme by visiting our dedicated web-page at

We have also published a useful information booklet, which explains more about the programme, what we are trying to achieve, and the key areas where we would like your input. You can view the information booklet by clicking here.

On the website and in the information booklet you will also find a link to complete an online feedback form. Here you can tell us what is important to you so we can make sure it is considered in our thinking. All of this feedback will be used by our technical teams when they start planning future routes later in the programme.

This is the biggest change to the UK's airspace in over 50 years and I hope that you will be able to find the time to play your part in shaping it.
