Future plans

Over the next few years the airspace in the UK is being modernised through the Government's Future Airspace Strategy. To inform thinking about Heathrow's future airspace changes, Heathrow will be running a series of joint trials with NATS (the UK's air traffic controller) over the next few years. On these pages you can also find out more about Heathrow’s proposals to build an additional runway and the likely impacts this would have for people living around the airport.
