Our campaigning friends at Ciampino Airport have had a real success. The authorities have said that by 2020 commercial flights must reduce by 33% and that from December this year there must be no night flights between 23:00 to 06:00.
Many of you will know that the campaigners have been arguing for years that the airport, which many live very close to, has for many years been flouted the regulations imposed on it. Ryanair has been the main culprit. This is a big victory for the citizens pressure groups and the local authorities!
