Biggin Hill Airport has submitted an application to change its operating hours to Bromley Council following the results of a public consultation.

The proposed hours are 6.30am to 11pm from Monday to Saturday and 8am to 11pm on Sundays and public holidays.

No more than eight flights would depart or land in the first half hour of the day from Monday to Saturday, excluding public holidays, under the proposals.

No more than eight flights would depart or land in the last hour of the day.

The current operating hours are from 6.30am to 10pm from Monday to Friday and 9am to 8pm on weekends and public holidays.

Bromley Council leader Stephen Carr said the council would carefully consider the application.

Cllr Carr said: “Residents will remember that the council originally purchased the airport to ensure that its airport use continues and to protect residents’ interests.

“Whilst the council is a landlord, it is also a publicly accountable organisation and we felt it right for transparency reasons to confirm we have received this application.”

He said the council would share more information and consult with residents in due course.
