Kent International Airport submits night flights plan
The owners of Kent International Airport have formally applied to the council to operate night flights.
Infratil was required to submit its plans for a new night flying policy at the Manston site at least six months before it wants flights to start.
A previous application was submitted in August 2009, but Infratil has now handed in an aircraft night noise assessment report.
Thanet District Council said it would carry out a public consultation.
It also said it would seek an independent assessment of the Infratil report and provide advice to the public, explaining the impact of the night flying proposed.
