first_img whatsapp KCS-content City Airport wins battle for flights Share Show Comments ▼ LONDON CITY Airport has won a High Court decision that will allow it to increase the number of flights it operates by up to 50 per cent. Local residents were fighting to overturn a 2008 decision by Newham Council to allow the expansion, citing noise and pollution levels in their bid to halt the new flights. The maximum flights permitted at the airport will now increase from 91,000 to 120,000 per year.Richard Gooding, chief executive of London City Airport said the increase in flights “will allow us, and our partner airlines, to continue our key role in supporting the local, regional and national economies and providing new local employment and training opportunities.” It’s estimated that flights could rise to 120,000 a year.
