UK Airlines respond to Transport Secretary’s comments on Heathrow expansion

August 14, 2019

Responding to comments today from the Transport Secretary, Grant Shapps MP, that he would like to review the funding of Heathrow expansion, Tim Alderslade, Chief Executive of Airlines UK, the industry association that represents 13 UK-registered carriers, said:

“Whilst airlines support expansion, the Transport Secretary is right to review Heathrow’s funding. Costs are running out of control and the scheme is too expensive”.
