The Independent: "Heathrow set for big increase in capacity"

Link to web site

"Heathrow's capacity problems could be solved without the need for a new runway, as strict rules on take-offs and landings are eased from next month.

"The 'silver bullet' solution to the airport's congestion crisis could unlock up to 25 per cent more slots with no extra building. Introducing so-called 'mixed mode' flying – under which runways are used for both take-offs and landings at the same time – could allow 120,000 extra aircraft movements each year at Europe's busiest airport."
