The British Airports Authority will guarantee a freeze on the number of night flights, reports the Daily Telegraph (p8). The move is planned to speed up the public inquiry into a fifth terminal at Heathrow.

Company chairman John Egan is writing to the 500,000 residents closest to Heathrow to say the authority will accept a freeze on night flights, even though the new terminal would increase airport capacity by 50%.

Objectors against the fifth terminal have been most concerned about a possible increase in flights between 11.30pm and 6am.
