London Heathrow Airport Organized The Manifesto to Gain a Support for Expansion
A decision of the expansion plan among London Heathrow and Gatwick Airport is still pending. The authorities of both airports are trying their level best to get the final decision in their favor. Heathrow launches an “election-style” manifesto to gain the support for its expansion plan.
According to the authorities of London Heathrow Airport, if the third runway is built, then the west London airport claims to provide up to 40 more long-haul routes and better air, rail and bus connections with every major area of a city in the country. They also claim that the expansion would boost the economy by as much as £211 billions and 1,80,000 new jobs for the unemployed persons.
The events are being held in Liverpool, Yorkshire, Midland and Thames Valley to launch manifesto on Monday.
London Gatwick Airport is also trying at its own end for the permission to build another runway. The authorities of Gatwick Airport began a campaign tour in Manchester last week with upcoming visits to Belfast, Birmingham, Newcastle and Edinburgh.
They claim that if another runway is built, then they will provide the cheaper flights to and from South East and greater economic benefits across the country.
The Chief Executive of Heathrow Airport said:
“Economic security, opportunity for people in every part of Britain, outward looking abroad, but fair to our neighbors at home – that is the promise of our manifesto. But, we can’t do it alone – we need people across the country to let the Prime Minster and the Government know that they cannot just hope for a stronger economy and country – they need to choose it and the right choice is Heathrow.”
The Chief Executive of Gatwick Airport said:
“With the Government shortly set to make a decision on airport capacity, it is important that the regions and nations of the UK know how expansion in the South East will benefit them. Rather than concentrating growth in a corner of west London, Gatwick expansion will spread more evenly the economic benefits which will help deliver regional powerhouses across the UK.”
