The co-sponsors of the proposal, LLA and air traffic control provider NATS, reviewed and categorised feedback from more than 2,400 respondents, focusing on the common themes that arose throughout the consultation.
"It has been decided to progress Option One, which means minimal changes from today’s flight paths below 5,000ft, and greater dispersion of flights above 5,000ft," the airport said. "The location and orientation of the new holding area near the A1-A14 junction has been adjusted and the lowest standard altitude of the hold raised by 1,000ft."
This will be reducing potential noise impacts on the residents of St Neots and Huntingdon, according to the airport.
"I sincerely hope that people will see our genuine effort to respond to their concerns and I believe the adjustments we are making will make a real and positive difference," NATS manager Lee Boulton said.
