Purpose of this change

This proposal is for a Permanent change to the notified airspace design, and the change level is TBC. The detailed process requirements are published in Part 1 of CAP 1616.

As part of the wider airspace modernistation in the South East, London City Airport Ltd. is planning to make changes to integrate the airport’s arrival and departure routes, and associated airspace structures, with proposed higher level routes proposed by NATS. These changes could affect traffic at altitudes from 0 to 7000ft.

London City Airport currently has a system of PBN and conventional SIDs, STARs and arrival transitions which were introduced in 2016.

Passenger delays are expected to increase sharply over the next ten years if the airspace structure and route network are not upgraded to introduce additional capacity.

The Future Airspace Strategy Implementation South (FASI South) programme has been established by NATS and 15 key airports operating in southern England, including London City Airport, to coordinate a series of linked ACPs that will modernise the overall airspace structure and route network.

CAA response to Step 2a

21/05/2021: The CAA is satisfied with the Change Sponsor's assessment of the contextual consideration and agrees the proposal can resume. However, until iteration two of the airspace change masterplan including the associated programme plan has been assessed and accepted by the CAA and Department for Transport as co-sponsors of airspace modernisation, no indicative timeline can be agreed by the CAA for this airspace change proposal. It is anticipated that the Develop & Assess Gateway for this ACP will not be before Q1 2022.

09/07/2021:

Until iteration two of the airspace change masterplan including the associated programme plan has been assessed and accepted by the CAA and Department for Transport as co-sponsors of airspace modernisation, the full indicative timeline for this ACP cannot be confirmed. The Define and/or Develop & Assess Gateway(s) within the published document 'Indicative Timeline - July 2021' are subject to change.
