Safety and security are of paramount importance, these issues were considered by the Airports Commission and will be given due regard again at appropriate points in the process in light of established procedures and standards that apply to all airports.

Flightpaths for an expanded Heathrow have not been formulated and will be subject to consultation as part of the airspace change process.
