Date extended for talks

Airport extends consultation after website glitch

Edinburgh AirportEdinburgh Airport has been forced to extend its public consultation on changing the flight path after some submissions were lost in a computer glitch.

Those who submitted online between 10:31am on 29 August and 12:05pm 2 September are being asked to to resubmit their comments after 199 pieces of data were not saved during a planned upgrade of the website.

As a result, the airport has extended the consultation by a week to 19 September.

The airport said there have been thousands of responses to date and while the number not saved is small the airport is committed to ensuring everyone is given the opportunity to have their say.

Of the 199 missing submissions, 21 email addresses were captured and the airport will be contacting them directly to explain the situation and request they resubmit.

Gordon Robertson, director of communications, said the airport apologised for losing the data.

Edinburgh Airport has been conducting its Lets Go Further ACP (Airspace Change Programme) consultation since June this year and has already had an excellent response with thousands of submissions.

“We are asking anyone whose response may therefore not be visible to us to resubmit their views via the website.”
