Step 2a : Develop & Assess

Purpose of this change

In line with the UK’s Airspace Modernisation Strategy, Manchester Airport wishes to modernise airspace arrangements for aircraft operating to and from the Airport at altitudes of 7,000 feet and below. This change will take advantage of modern navigational technology and is, in part, required due to the removal of VHF Omni-directional Range (VOR) beacons that aircraft currently use to navigate. These changes will meet the airport’s mandatory obligations, deliver an airspace design that will enable Manchester Airport to continue to grow to make best use of its available runway capacity and seek to deliver benefits to passengers, by reducing delays, and to the environment, by facilitating more efficient operations, including reducing unnecessary aircraft holding.
