Reasonable CAA stats for March. Pax up 5.6% to 715,403 with the rolling year up 1.1% to 9.63m.
I would imagine Easter was a major contributing factor for this, as Easter usually takes place in April...

So to balance it out, April figures might look a little disappointing on the surface.

I see the south stands have been pressed back into service for parking executive jets. No idea which FBO is using them as all the FBO parking areas seem to be at bursting point.

There has been as Canadian Air Force Airbus CC-150 Polaris (A310-300) parked on the new RSS Apron today making this the biggest aircraft so far to be parked on the former flying club site.

It will be interesting to see what happens when Signature stop leasing stands 16 and 17. There were so many aircraft parked on there today I lost count.

Is there a need for SIG to stop leasing S16 & S17 yet?

No not yet, the main apron will gain stands when the hangar line is re-marked up.

I can't see how Signature will manage without stands 16 and 17 being used for executive jet parking. It might be the case that instead of the airport leasing the stands out to Signature that the airport gains all the fees from aircraft parked on these stands.

Depending on what the airport charges to use these stands might influence how many executive jets use the airport in the future.

See that the new "north" entrance to Luton Airport Parkway station was opened today by local MPs. Should make life a little easier for passengers, especially those utilising the services of the new, adjacent Hampton hotel.

Bunch of people outside Putteridge Bury (on the A505 on the way to Hitchin) at lunchtime with placards 'No More Night Flights'. Have they moved the airport?

Does Putteridge Bury have any on-site accommodation? Student flats on busy roads in town would be more of any issue!?

I was in Redbourn yesterday and aircraft were departing from Runway 26. Aircraft were periodically departing over the village at approx 3,000 feet amsl. There was barely any noise; certainly not at a meaningful level that would affect quality of life.

So where do the NIMBYs find their irritating noise from?

With the warmer days now upon us, I can vision plants finally opening up and showing off their colourful arrays of lushness whilst butterflies make their contributibution to pollination enthusiastically. As they do so, they steer clear of hungry birds of prey whilst gently soaring over the village greens where the elite sip from their champagne glasses below. Swat! Poor might’s should have steered clear of Flamstead and Harpenden gardens, for any sound generated by anything that moves in the air is considered an irritant.

Buster - I remember seeing a telex machine in 1996 but don't recall seeing one since. Are they common at Luton airport ?

UEFA Champions League and F1 Grand Prix Weekend

ACL, as the UK slot coordinator, will have an effective coordination process in place to manage traffic over the weekend of the 24th-26th May. During this weekend additional air transport demand is anticipated at the London Airports due to the UEFA Champions League Weekend being held at Wembley and the Formula 1 Grand Prix in Monaco.

In partnership with the London Airports we will put in place the procedure attached to deal with the additional demand. This will be applicable to all flights including General and Business Aviation.

ACL will use DFS to match flight plans to coordinated slot times, failure to comply will result in flight plans being suspended. In addition to the information provided on the briefs you may also see a NOTAM and AIP SUP - S 018/2013 published with regards to this event.



UEFA Champions League Final Slot Allocation Procedure 2013
Page 1 of 3

For the attention of air carriers operating air services to London Airports between the 24th May and 26th May for the UEFA Champions League Final.

Subject: UEFA Champions League Final 2013 in London

To whom it may concern,

The UEFA Champions League Final will be hosted at Wembley Stadium in London on the 25th May, which will lead to additional demand at London Stansted, London Gatwick and London Luton Airports.
For the period of the 24th May till 26th May, ACL will be implementing a slot allocation procedure to ensure punctual airport operations to aid efficient and effective utilisation of airport capacity.

All slot application requests (SCRs) will be collected on to the 2nd May once both teams have been announced. Once slot requests have been received ACL will process the messages and then refer all flights to the designated airport. The airport will then reply back to ACL after a referral process and ACL will respond back to the air carriers. In terms of dates please see below
