We’ve seen the film about Heathrow expansion before and we know how it ends

While the airport expansion debate has rolled on for decades, what everyone can unite around is the fact that something needs to happen. Expanding Gatwick will provide the connectivity and capacity the UK needs, help the industry respond to change, and encourage competition, innovation, and growth.

Gatwick’s plan is flexible to serve all airline business models and will reflect changing business trends meaning it can deliver more passengers and more destinations, earlier. It can provide the economic boost the UK needs and will boost choice, and enhance competition at a fraction of the cost of expansion at Heathrow.

Economic growth should not be pursued at any cost, however, and ultimately any Government will have to decide on the balance between the environment and the economy. We’ve seen the film about Heathrow expansion before and we know how it ends – nothing happens.

Heathrow already generates more noise for more people than all the other major hub airports in Europe put together. While a lot of things can change in this debate, the one thing that cannot change is Heathrow’s location and it is becoming clear that Gatwick is the only option that should be pursued if something is to finally happen.
