Petition Action

Stop all flights between 10.30pm and 7am at regional airports

Petition Details

Bring in legislation to protect residents human rights to sleep. The NHS state that most adults need between 6 and 9 hours of sleep every night. Some airports have flights throughout the night limiting the ability of many to get the sleep they require. It is inhumane.

Additional Information

Bring in legislation to stop all aircraft movements during the hours from 10.30pm and 7am at airports to allow residents living near/under the flightpath better opportunities to sleep.

Children among others are being woken up unnecessarily by planes either over their houses or maintenance in hangars next to their homes.

It's a basic right to be able to sleep and moreover sleep deprivation creates serious risk to health, through stress and heart failure, which could put a strain on the NHS.
