Hitchin and Harpenden MP Peter Lilley has called on the Department of Transport to review the noise disturbance from night flights at Luton airport.
The Conservative MP has long been campaigning for Luton to be treated the same way as Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted.
It follows a consultation launched last week to bring in tighter noise quotas and introduce quieter planes at the other London airports.
The noise caused by night flights from Luton is particularly distressing for those affected. As London grows, air traffic is increasing.
"There were 4,897 night flights into and out of Luton Airport between July and September 2016 - 12% more than during the same period in 2015.
"I shall be writing to the Government to ask why Luton Airport has been excluded from this consultation."

Police in Hertfordshire are trying to track down a motorist after a car was driven the wrong way down the A414 between Hatfield and St Albans.
Police tried to stop the vehicle which was travelling west towards St Albans on Saturday 7 January.
The driver pulled into the Shell petrol station before driving through the forecourt and back onto the carriageway, travelling in the wrong direction.
Officers say they did not pursue the vehicle for the safety of members of the public.
“This was an extremely dangerous thing to do as it put other road users at risk of serious, or even fatal injury.
“We are working to trace the person responsible and I am appealing for anyone who witnessed the incident, or who thinks they know the identity of the driver to please get in touch.”
