Airport Expansion

Tuesday, October 25, 2016 0:43
% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Reports suggest that the (very) long running debate over how the Country should expand its airport capacity in the South East will finally end today when the government announces a decision on what will happen. To be fair to Theresa May having only been in post a few weeks she has been positively speedy on the issue compared to the years of consideration which has gone on before. Whenever the decision is made it was always likely to be controversial.

My concern is how the expansion of airport capacity at Heathrow or Gatwick will affect Manchester airport and how economy in and around Manchester and the wider North West. Whatever the government decide it will be years before any new runway is open for use. In the meantime I would like to see more being done to encourage airlines make use of Manchester airport which has plenty of spare capacity and has ambitious plans to expand its facilities over the coming years.
