Reply To: Extra runways at London airports

Back to Forum


I will state from the beginning I have a financial interest in the expansion of both Heathrow and Gatwick.

That being said I can tell BT forum readers that from the industry point of view expansion of both airports is a no brainer. We all know it needs to happen, we all know it will happen but we are dealing with politics, with civil servants who think doing nothing is a choice and with the disproportionate influence of the ‘Green’ lobby who seriously think that restricting UK airport development will lead to less global air travel.

We need politicians with guts.
