London City Airport has night time operating restrictions set as part of a planning agreement between the airport and the London Borough of Newham. These restrictions ban operations during the night period from 22.30-06.30, except for emergencies. These restrictions therefore minimise night flight disturbance to areas such as Romford from aircraft operating out of London City Airport.
