Should Britain build more runways? | Director


Britain is losing business to Germany, France, and Holland – all countries that have planned ahead and invested in airports big enough to accommodate traffic. 

Lack of airport capacity is having a detrimental effect on the UK economy, so we have some urgent catching up to do. For one thing, we do not offer enough flights to emerging economies, which is ridiculous because the need for those flights was foreseen 20 years ago.

Runways are a start, but we need to expand Gatwick, Stansted and Birmingham immediately too. We need a big vision, such as a new airport in the Midlands or further south.
