Commenting on media reports today that the government is soon to announce a consultation on plans for a new London airport, Simon Buck, Chief Executive of the British Air Transport Association (BATA) said:
"The government needs to maintain and build UK connectivity to emerging markets through permitting privately funded additional extra airport capacity where it is most needed and demand is greatest – in the South East of England. Without this, the competiveness of the UK economy will continue to be eroded and jobs will be lost."
