Jardine calls for Edinburgh flight path solution

Christine Jardine MP has called for all involved to work together to resolve the problems over Edinburgh Airport’s new flight path.

Christine held talks with both NATS, the air service navigation provider, and the CAA in recent weeks to press the community's case.

NATs are working with Edinburgh Airport on the submission of the flight path proposals, which have been paused by the CAA, who asked for further evidence from the airport.

Ms Jardine expressed the concerns of local residents in Cramond who, potentially will be most affected. 

Christine Jardine said:

"Maintaining the left turn before Cramond in the current flight path is vital. We must minimise disruption to the community as far as possible.

“Residents are apprehensive about the proposals. It is in Edinburgh Airport’s interest to work with both Cramond and South Queensferry to solve ongoing issues.

“I am calling on community groups, NATs and Edinburgh Airport to work together. The flight path plan submitted to the Civil Aviation Authority must be safe and fair to the local area. The issues need to be solved, and solved soon.”
