HEATHROW'S enemy number one insists the battle is far from over despite a string of victories against the airport's proposed expansion.
John Stewart, chairman of campaign group HACAN ClearSkies, enjoyed a spectacular year of success in 2010.
In March last year, High Court judges ruled against the Labour Party's decision to allow a third runway at Heathrow, while just months later the new coalition government ruled out expansion at the airport.
Only last month, Labour announced it was reviewing its policy on a third runway under new leader Ed Miliband - putting yet another dent in the ambitions of airport owners BAA.
However, Mr Stewart this week told the Chronicle there was plenty more work to do in the next couple of years - beginning with the fight to ban night flights.
The current night flights regime, which allows a limited amount of take-offs and landings between 11.30am and 6am, is up for renewal in October 2012.
Consultation on the new rules is expected to start soon, with HACAN calling for a complete ban on flights between 11pm and 6am.
In January, it published an independent report suggesting the move could actually boost the economy by up to £860 million over the next decade.
That estimate, based on the financial impact of sleep deprivation, is in stark contrast to the aviation industry's claims of financial gloom should such a measure be adopted.
"Our next battle is to get a ban on night flights before 6am and we're confident this report destroys the last remaining argument for night flights," said Mr Stewart.
"We're also expecting the Government to come out with what it calls a 'scoping study', which is the first stage in developing a new aviation policy.
"Despite ministers saying everything's on the table except for expansion, we're worried the aviation industry will press quite hard for expansion at Heathrow.
"Meanwhile, the Labour Party will also be drawing up its aviation policy over the summer, so we will be lobbying them quite hard."
BAA last month backed London Mayor Boris Johnson's attack on the coalition government's opposition to extra capacity at airports in the south east.
Highlighting figures which showed Heathrow had slipped from second to fourth in the list of the world's busiest internatonal airports, he said London's future economic growth depended upon more airport capacity.
