The current annual limit of 111,000 should be increased by 36% to 151,000 by 2035, according to a draft master plan out for consultation. This could mean an extra 110 flights per day.

Campaigners described the plan as a "disaster for residents".

The airport pledged up to 2,500 new jobs and that sustainability was "central" to its thinking.

There were 75,000 flights carrying more than 4.8m people at the airport in 2018 and passenger numbers have increased by 42% over the past five years.

The draft plan forecasts that by 2030 passenger demand to use the airport in the Royal Docks, east London, could increase to 9.8m per year and to 11m by 2035. See more in BBC Londres

However, I think that it would be really nice to increase the number of flights, because London is a very beautiful city and a lot of people want to see it. The number of tourists is insanely big, so the airport should definitely be improved. I have read on a site that after the airport is going to increase the number of flights with 202 flights per month. I think that it's a pretty nice result, moreover, I have recently read on https://www.sunsigns.org/angel-number-202-meaning/ that 202 it a very powerful angelic number, and it's a good sign! I think that it's a blessing! Everything is going to be fine
