Heathrow has released a new report summing up why it is the best expansion option for the UK.
Serving as a lobbying instrument to the Airport Commission, the report positions Heathrow as a viable expansion option that is financially and environmentally deliverable, and winning local support and backing across the UK.
The report highlights that Heathrow expansion is backed by more than 30 Chambers of Commerce around the UK as well as the aviation industry and manufacturers. At community level, 50% of those surrounding the airport support expansion with 33% opposing.
Importantly, the report estimates that the economic benefit of Heathrow expansion is up to £211bn, which is almost £100bn more than choosing Gatwick.
