Runway 2 to be used overnight on 38 nights

by Iain Roberts on 4 January, 2016

Manchester Airport has told us that, for routine maintenance, runway 1 will be closed and runway 2 used for up to 38 nights (10pm to 6am) in 2016.

You can see the dates and details here.

Runway 2 flights can be noisier for some local residents.

    Which one is runway 2? Is that the one near the Tatton Arms?

  2. Roy says:

    Does this mean flights taking off over Cheadle?

  3. Chris Hornby says:

    How many flights do they run? I was always under the impression that there was a period of time at night when no flights were allowed.
    Many cities around the world do not allow aircraft traffic at night in built up areas!

    What are the current night flight restrictions, if any ? This is something affecting us all, but more space taken over discussing The old cinema building or Kingsway lights I think it’s about time flight noise became an important issue.

  5. Roy says:

    Your right Rick aircraft noise is becoming a big issue especially when the aircraft take off over Gatley/Cheadle .
    The impact of the airport on surrounding areas needs to monitored in the interests of the residents of Stockport in general.

  6. Chris Hornby says:

    I don’t think the interests of the residents of Stockport come into consideration when it comes to the money making machine that is Manchester Airport!
