Edinburgh Airport resubmits plans for flight path changes
Locals had raised concerns over noise increases as a result of the changes.
Edinburgh Airport has resubmitted plans to change its flight paths after original proposals attracted criticism.
The revised proposal would see all aircraft go towards the west of Cramond, over the Fife coast and along the Firth of Forth.
It will be considered by the Civil Aviation Authority.
The airport said it needs to upgrade airspace to serve its growing number of passengers.
In a recent consultation on flight paths, more than half of the 4000 people who took part raised concerns over increases in noise.
Gordon Dewar, chief executive of the airport, said: "Vast growth at the airport as well as the change in technology means we need to modernise our airspace to meet current and future demand, and it is a process many airports are looking at.
"Our approach at Edinburgh Airport must be one that is balanced between the needs of the airport and the economy and customers we serve as well as those of our neighbouring communities - we believe our proposals do that.
"Although there was no requirement to consult, we wanted to go back to our communities to listen to their valued feedback and understand their concerns.
"They were part of a wider conversation with our airlines and other partners who all have an interest in this process and our proposals take into account all of that dialogue."
