    Government announces plan to combat delays at Heathrow:)

    In an attempt to improve Heathrow Airport’s recovery time after disruption, it will be permitted to use its two runways for both landings and take-offs.
    The airport already does this in exceptional circumstances, but new rules from the Department for Transport (DfT) will mean this can happen more often.
    The move means more flights can land and take off in a shorter period of time, improving Heathrow’s capacity, but those living near the airport could be worse affected by noise.
