The Independent Platform for Airport Capacity Debate

 

Runways UK in 2017

A message from the Runways UK team...

We set out in 2012 to create an independent and unaligned platform for debate on the UK's aviation capacity issues. Intentionally we ran independently of, but in parallel with, Sir Howard Davies' Airports Commission, set up to investigate and recommend the best location for runway expansion needed to meet the UK's aviation capacity needs.

Government is yet to make a decision on the Airports Commission's recommendations released in July 2015. The Brexit vote and new Government increases the uncertainty on when a decision will be made.

We are so strongly associated with the southeast debate that to have an event in 2016 that did not, at least in part, address the outcome, would seem inappropriate. For this reason we have taken the difficult decision to shelve plans for a 2016 event. 

There is still very much a need for an event forum on UK capacity issues and our plan is to work towards a 2017 event.

The southeast runway decision (which we all hope will be made by then) will form part of this discussion, but the broader debate will be about how we manage aviation capacity across the UK, both on the ground and in the air, in the short, medium and long term to keep Britain at the centre of the world aviation stage.
