New readers start here

Some background...
  • Manston Airport is owned by a New Zealand-based company called Infratil.
  • Infratil have signed a 'Section 106 Agreement' (S106) with Thanet District Council (TDC) which regulates how Infratil can use Manston - they can't suddenly decide to turn it into a spaceport and launch satellites, for example.
  • The S106 states that Infratil isn't allowed to schedule any night flights, although a scheduled flight that arrives late can actually land.
  • A night flight is any take-off or landing between 11pm and 7am.
  • Infratil have said they want more night flights.
Here's a chance to make your voice heard. If you don't want night flights, sign the petition. If you really don't want night flights, get other people to sign it too.
