    London Airspace Management Programme (LAMP) Phase 1A

    LAMP 1A is a major airspace change proposal affecting airspace arrangements in south-east England, from Stansted to the Isle of Wight. The package has been developed over the last three years and was submitted to the CAA in February 2015.

    It is intended to modernise airspace structure, improve operational efficiency and environmental performance, minimise delays and deliver safety benefits. It includes five separate airspace change proposals (ACPs) some of which are inter-related and cannot occur unless other of the airspace changes also take place. The overall fuel and CO2 savings, which are an important factor when considering these ACPs, are only delivered if all the modules are implemented.
