AAs you may be aware, we had been in the process of seeking a broad range of stakeholders’ views on the way in which Glasgow Airport should progress its part of a UK-wide initiative to modernise the country’s airspace, known as the Airspace Modernisation Strategy (AMS). This process is known as an Airspace Change Proposal (ACP). However, given the outbreak of COVID-19, Glasgow Airport took the decision in 2020 to postpone this work.
During 2022, Glasgow Airport was able to recommence its ACP. Since this time, we have engaged with our existing stakeholders, in addition to any new relevant stakeholders. We have held a number of online workshops and received feedback from a wide range of stakeholder groups.
We were advised by the CAA in September 2022 that we had successfully passed the Stage 2 gateway. We have now commenced work on Stage 3 and are preparing for a full public consultation on our Comprehensive List of Options. A key element of the public consultation is that it takes place when proposals are at a formative stage, so that feedback has the potential to affect the proposals. As such, Glasgow Airport is expecting the public consultation to take place in early 2024 and will provide updates on this process in advance here.
