Runways UK

A broad-based independent forum, Runways UK, will launch its inaugural event in London on 16 January.

The one-day conference will take place soon after the release of the Airports Commission’s Interim Report on the need for additional airport capacity.

The organisers say the event will allow a large gathering of key stakeholders and interested parties the opportunity to learn more about the short listed schemes, in a neutral environment, and thus help move the debate forward through better understanding of the key issues.  The aim is to include detailed political insights and presentations from the scheme vendors.

Runways UK is supported by the Airport Operators Association, the British Air Transport Association, the Board of Airline Representatives in the UK, the International Air Rail Organisation, British Aviation Group and London First, and is led by an Advisory Board of business, aviation, rail, infrastructure and tourism leaders chaired by the Rt Hon The Baroness (Brenda) Dean of Thornton-le Fylde.

Baroness Dean said: “We want to hear the short listed schemes analysed publically in a format which will enable delegates to assess each one against the Davies Commission’s own sift criteria.  Each scheme owner will be rigorously challenged against these criteria by both a panel of independent experts and the audience”. www.runwaysuk.com
