Jardine to take flight path case to National Aircraft Service

Christine Jardine MP is to raise concerns over proposed changes to Edinburgh Airport flight path directly with the National Aircraft Service (NATS).

This follows a meeting Ms Jardine had with the Civil Aviation Authority earlier this month on the same issue. 

Ms Jardine, MP for Edinburgh West, stressed the aim of the talks with NATS is to ensure that the best solution for the new flight path is reached for both her constituents in Cramond and South Queensferry and Edinburgh Airport.   

Ms Jardine who would like clarity from NATS on some of the Airport’s proposals, said: 

“Everyone involved wants to achieve the best resolution for both the local community and the Airport and as the MP I believe its my responsibility to work towards this outcome.

“Safety has to be the number one priority for any new flight path. I have secured a meeting with NATS to ensure I am fully briefed on all the latest issues and so I can represent the real concerns that local communities in my constituency have. 

“I am in constant dialogue with my constituents about the proposed flight path changes and I really want to see a workable solution that works best for all involved.” 

Ms Jardine is meeting with the NATS in November.
