Up in the air ...

NEW for Norwich Airport … Flybe services to Alicante, Malaga, and Geneva. Year-round flights from Norwich to Alicante and Malaga will start in March next year, while the Geneva service is expected later in 2016.

UNITED AIRLINES is to introduce non-stop flights between Auckland, New Zealand and its San Francisco next July. Initially, the service will operate three times weekly, increasing to daily flights later in the year.

MANCHESTER AIRPORT has launched an online tool that allows members of the public to see flight and noise data collected by the airport’s aircraft noise monitoring and tracking system. WebTrak allows residents to see flight activity within 30 miles of the airport. Wendy Sinfield, airport community relations manager, said: ‘We recognize that aircraft landing and taking off can affect our neighbours. By making flight and noise information available on the internet, people can go online and use the system to find details of a particular flight (airline, aircraft type, and destination), locate their property on a map and calculate the height that the aircraft was flying above and the distance from their property and if they have a comment or concern about a particular flight they can report it to us using the system.’

HEATHROW’S chief executive John Holland-Kaye has called upon global leaders to take action to cut carbon emissions. He says Heathrow has achieved a Level 3 Airport Carbon Accreditation, which confirms the airport has ‘optimized’ its carbon footprint reduction by engaging with third parties when measuring and reducing its carbon footprint. Heathrow has committed to a further 34% reduction in CO2 emissions from energy used in buildings by 2020, as well as reducing CO2 from the airports vehicles.
