Business leaders say night flights into London's airports must be protected because they are a vital part of the economy.
They were responding to a Department for Transport consultation ending today on current night flying operations at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted.
The Department for Transport has strict rules regarding night flights into London Airports. Those regulations are due to end next year. Ministers must now decide if it is time for a change.
How many night flights are there in London? Figures from the Civil Aviation Authority suggest:
Night flights: Between 11.30pm - 6.00am
- Heathrow handles 15 flights
- Gatwick handles 31 overnight flights
- Stansted has an average of 22 flights
