Following HACAN East's press release earlier in the week, London City Airport have confirmed that they are bringing the popular Webtrak software to their website, allowing residents to monitor aircraft movements to and from London City Airport. Webtrak was installed on Heathrow's website after pressure from residents affected by Heathrow traffic, so we are pleased to see LCA finally following suit and giving east London residents the information they want.
London City New Website ‘a big missed opportunity’
Posted on February 19, 2012
Campaign group HACAN East, which represents residents under the London City and Heathrow flight paths, has called City Airport’s new website (1), that was unveiled last week, ‘a big missed opportunity’. The group has said that the new website should have included a ‘Webtrak’ facility such as BAA has on its Heathrow site. Webtrak allows people to use the internet to watch the planes as they and take off (2).
HACAN East Chair John Stewart said, “Webtrak is incredibly useful. It shows people exactly where the flight paths are and how high the planes are in any particular area. It is especially important for any people moving new into the area. London City missed a big opportunity by not installing Webtrak when revamping its website.”
HACAN East will be pressing London City to provide a Webtrak facility so people can easily access information about flight paths.
