Heathrow Landing and Takeoff flightpaths

Normally, Heathrow alternates the use of runways for landing at night over a four week cycle, and during daytime over a two week cycle.

For the duration of the Pandemic this alternation schedule may be varied, for example to accommodate single runway operations.

Click here for Heathrow’s page giving the runway alternation schedules.

You can check on planes flying into Heathrow, and the resulting sound levels, on Webtrak. This includes a Historical facility, which is useful for identifying flights that may have disturbed you in the early morning.
