Changes to entering the UK using EU ID cards

    Previous Airspace Change Proposals


    Heathrow previously initiated a number of Airspace Change Proposals (ACPs) to address specific airspace issues or constraints. However, these were paused in 2020 so the airport could prioritise recovery from the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The airspace modernisation programme will require the wholesale redesign of flight paths to and from Heathrow’s two existing runways. Requirements associated with previous ACPs will be incorporated into the new airspace design where appropriate.
