New flight path over the capital
Edinburgh Airport
Essential maintenance is being carried out at the airport
Aircraft using Edinburgh Airport at night will be flying over the south of the city for the next few weeks due to a temporary rerouting.

Households in South Gyle, Colinton, Fairmilehead and Gilmerton are being warned of the potential noise disturbance until 10 October.

Planes will fly along this alternative path between 2300 BST and 0545 BST.

Essential maintenance work is being carried out on the main runway, which has been closed.

Any aircraft arriving or departing during these time periods will be directed to take off or land using the airport's cross wind runway.

Residents who would like to raise concerns about aircraft noise can contact Edinburgh Airport's 24 hour freephone noise line on 0800 731 3397.
