City of London Corporation calls for mixed mode operations at Heathrow

UK's City of London Corporation has called for the introduction of mixed mode operations at London Heathrow International Airport (Reuters, 01-Feb-2011). The introduction of mixed mode at Heathrow – both runways being used for take-offs and landings – would reportedly permit an increase of aircraft movements to around 525,000 p/a, up from the current capped level of 480,000. This would result in an increase of around 10 million passengers.
