BAA Stansted today unveils its new ‘WebTrak’
system that puts online the flight tracks of aircraft arriving and departing
from the airport, and displays their height and location.
‘WebTrak’ forms an integral element of a new noise website,
www.stanstedairport.com/noise, launched today as part of a £1.8 million
investment by BAA to upgrade its noise and track keeping systems. The website –
which has also been set up at BAA’s other two London airports, Heathrow and
Gatwick – is designed to help people who want to know more about aircraft noise
and track keeping issues in their local communities.
The site includes several new features including the ability to make a noise
enquiry or complaint online for the first time, and users will be provided with
information about aircraft noise in their local communities.
Vicki Hughes, Stansted’s noise communications manager, said: “The launch of this
new noise website is another positive development in the open way in which we
work with local communities to share as much information as possible about
“This significant investment demonstrates how fully committed we are to
providing the best possible service to members of the public about noise and
aircraft track keeping.
“In coming weeks we will further enhance the ‘WebTrak’ service and extend the
area covered by the system to include more towns and villages to the east of
Stansted. These improvements will ensure even more communities have access to
the best possible information and the full range of services we’ve launched

leisure passengers alike.
“We’ve already seen great success with the development of Stansted’s
American connections to New York, Las Vegas and Washington; and future links
to Asia, Dubai and India are firmly in our sights. We’re in on-going
discussions with a number of airlines keen to tap into the long-haul
opportunities here at Stansted, the growth of which I’m sure will build on
the great success we’ve achieved in developing our European network.
“Northern Cyprus is one of Europe’s newly emerging tourist markets – and
with current restrictions meaning all flights must connect via mainland
Turkey - its great news that Ercan now has a low-cost link from the UK with
SunExpress services from Stansted.
“SunExpress has enjoyed great success on its route to Antalya from Stansted
since it began earlier this year, and advance bookings show that the Izmir /
Ercan links are set to be just as popular.”
