Keeping in Touch

We are committed to staying in touch with our community. To help provide the best possible service to the people who live in our neighbourhood, we hold regular Community Outreach 'surgeries' across the area, giving local residents the opportunity to raise queries and ask questions of members of our Community Relations Team.

Our Community Relations Team are on hand for face-to-face discussions about issues such as aircraft noise, the Sound Insulation Grant Scheme and Vortex Repair Scheme, our Community Trust Fund, public transport access and our environmental policies.

eNews
We also publish regular eNews throughout the year to keep the local community in touch with the latest developments at the Airport. We keep the community aware of temporary operational changes such as runway closures.
