Plans for a new engine testing facility at Norwich International Airport, which will help secure the future of 341 jobs, have been submitted.

A planning application for a building on the eastern part of the airfield has been put forward by the airport.

It has been working with KLM UK Engineering, which has been based at the airport repairing and overhauling engines for 35 years.

The plans have been submitted to Norwich City Council.

Andrew Bell, chief executive of Norwich International Airport, said: "This application is the culmination of an enormous amount of work to identify the optimum location and technology to enable engine testing to continue to take place, whilst minimising as far as possible the impact of the activity itself on the surrounding community.

"The ability to test engines is critical to KLM UK Engineering's business at the airport."
