Heathrow To Ban Night Flights: What Does This Mean For Budget Parking Near Heathrow Airport?

In a bid to support its current lobby for a third runway, Heathrow has announced that it will ban night flights.

For the thousands of travellers using Heathrow's carparks, an expansion might make it easier to find the reduce traffic and make flying less hectic. Traffic is currently too high and getting budget parking near Heathrow Airport is becoming more of a hassle.

The airport also revealed that it is ready to accept whatever decision the government would make regarding a fourth runway in the future.

In the mean time, there exists no restriction on night flights. However, a limit of 5,800 has been placed on landings and takeoffs occurring between 11.30 pm and 6am per year. This restriction makes pushes traffic to the day time, increasing congestion during the day.

Heathrow has pledged to honour all 11 requirements spelt out by the Airport Commission. The conditions also include a key requirement regarding air quality which will bar any new flights that do not meet Eu limits.

Chief executive John Holland-Kaye said in a letter to the Prime Minister: "To give you and your government an opportunity to make the right decision, we have acted now"

He added that expanding the airport would "create more jobs for thousands of Britons."

Indeed, the expansion would open the door for more players in the airport parking industry which will make it easy to get Heathrow airport park and ride discounts, especially in the early days after the expansion.

The chairman of the main group trying to make sure the expansion does not see the light of day, John Stewart, supported the move to ban night flights stating, "The step taken by Heathrow to ban night flights could turn out to be significant"

But banning night flights would also mean budget parking near Heathrow Airport will be hard to find as there will be a concentration of travellers during the day.

In response to the move, Gatwick Airport has confirmed its view that it is the only airport with the best prospects for expansion in the UK.

Stewart Wingate, Ceo of Gatwick said in a statement: "The move to ban night flights is a desperate attempt to sustain a project that cannot succeed"

"Expanding Heathrow will have a negative impact on thousands of people. On the other hand, expanding Gatwick will only affect 3% of that figure"

Shifting the expansion to Gatwick might also create some order at Heathrow as there will be more people using Gatwick, relieving Heathrow of its traffic. This will make it easier to get money off long stay Heathrow airport car parking as more space opens up.

Passenger traffic plummeted by 1.6% in April 2015 due to an earlier Easter holiday, but overall, those trying to get budget parking near Heathrow Airport still have a tough time as passenger growth continues, with traffic up by 1.5% so far in 2016.

Parking at Airports can help make finding budget parking near Heathrow Airport faster with their range of quality and affordable parking services. They find the best and the cheapest so you can just dive in and enjoy the discounts.
