This report puts forward the economic and business case for building a new hub airport to serve London and the South East.
The Mayor has warned the Government that the nation faces economic paralysis unless a new hub airport is built in the southeast of England.
He has published the second of what will be a series of reports examining why more aviation capacity is needed. The latest report sets out in the greatest detail yet provided why there is an undisputable economic argument that greater aviation capacity is required both by the capital and the whole of the UK.
It concludes that a new hub airport should become a pillar of the Government’s planning for economic growth and warns that without one the UK will lose its place at the top table of the global economy.
The first report, A new airport for London: Part 1 - The Case for New Capacity from Daniel Moylan, Deputy Chairman of TfL, was published in January 2011. This put forward the economic and business case for a new hub airport for London.
