Proposed new flight-paths

Post by kieronf » October 6th, 2019, 9:58 am

The government has published a report proposing changes to the approach and departure flight-paths for the island. The intention appears to be to minimise damage to protected areas but the report acknowledges that there will be a considerable noise impact for many centres of population that were previously unaffected by aircraft noise. The images show the new departure/arrival paths.

I don’t understand why they don’t come in via the sea and avoid the island?

My thoughts exactly. This year we flew down between Majorca and Menorca and then approached from the south, the only noise pollution was to Binisafulla.

Evidently, it is something to do with a new EU directive, so don't expect it to be logical or make any sense to anyone.

I really don't see any meaningful difference to the current approaches / departures flown for those scenarios.

Perhaps they are continuous approaches to minimise emissions.

Although the latter two are only relevant to domestic flights heading to MAD, PMI etc... I really cannot see the existing primary departure tracts being changed.
