Plans to change airspace over East Anglia revealed
With tickets getting cheaper and demand rising airports are planning expansion.
NATS said it would put any proposals to public consultation so that all views
could be heard, but this would not begin until much later in the year. The stacking
area for Luton would be over Little Gransden in Cambridgeshire. Stansted would
have two new stacking sites over Wratting Common south east of Cambridge and at
Wattisham in Suffolk. Aircraft stacks are loops about 20 miles around with up
to six aircraft one minute apart in each, separated by 1,000 feet (310m). (BBC
