The Australian 22 Sept 2017: Essendon operator backs change in curfew

22.09.2017 – 10:09 am

Corporate jet operators at Essendon Airport may no longer need to divert to Melbourne Airport during curfew hours under proposed changes the airport's boss hopes will cut red tape.

Essendon Airport boss Chris Cowan has swung in behind plans to update the curfew, which applies between 11pm and 6am. But the airport says it is also open to supporting further changes pushed by community representatives.
