Birmingham Airport is currently consulting on the flight paths used by planes taking off and landing at the aiport. There are currently 4 standard departure routings:
- sharp left over Birmingham's south west suburbs including Edgbaston
- north west towards Walsall
- north towards Sutton Coldfield
- south east via a right-hand U-turn
The airport is consulting on the removal of the north west route. This will mean that there will be more take offs on the routes that remain.
I have successfully argued for an extension of the consultation period. Residents I spoke to were unhappy with the information and the level of engagement.
