They heard chief executive Mark Tanzer say that managing the environmental impacts of tourism is one of ABTA’s strategic priorities.
“Expansion at Heathrow is a good example of this: we continue to support expansion at Heathrow airport on the basis that the airport is able to meet the environmental parameters that have been set,” he said.
Brexit featured. ABTA head of public affairs Luke Petherbridge said: “The immigration arrangements between the UK and the EU after Brexit will be reciprocal by nature, so it is important the UK government offers a framework which supports businesses operating at home and abroad.”
