BREAKING: Government gives green light to Heathrow expansion

The Transport Secretary, Chris Grayling, has announced that the government is backing expansion of Heathrow Airport. London First welcomes this decision.

In its next steps, the government has to look at better links to all our airports and plan for a future air capacity that keeps the UK trading with the world.

In 2013, London First initiated the Let Britain Fly campaign to call for airport capacity expansion in London and the South East to protect and enhance Britain’s status as a global aviation hub. You can see a short summary of its activity here.

To speak to a London First spokesperson, please call Emma Hutchinson on 020 7665 1422.
