Let’s get behind today’s momentous decision on airports capacity expansion

Runways UK welcomes today’s announcement by Transport Secretary Chris Grayling on Southeast airports capacity expansion. A pro-expansion debating forum, Runways UK ran in parallel with, but independently of, the Airports Commission, in order to bring clarity and balance to the debate. Runways UK believes that if our country is to continue to prosper in the highly connected world in which we live, expanding airport capacity is a must; particularly so in a post Brexit era when it is all the more important for Britain to send a signal to the rest of the world that it is taking seriously its future as a trading nation. Capacity expansion, as long as it is delivered responsibly, will bring significant social as well as economic benefit, and the added resilience which our aviation system desperately needs.

Runways UK urges the Government, the aviation community and the British population as a whole to get behind this momentous decision by supporting the development by Parliament of an aviation National Policy Statement required to ratify this decision.
