Airports Commission request

The Airports Commission, headed by Sir Howard Davies, has published what it calls “Utilisation of the UK’s Existing Airports Capacity,” call for evidence.

This is an addition to the series of information requests that have already been made, with the results published.

This appeal for data focuses on the domestic and international connectivity provided by regional airports and airports serving London and the South East other than Heathrow and Gatwick, and will consider what recommendations the Commission could usefully make to shape this context.

The publication will also examine the connectivity trends at these airports, how their business models are developing and whether the connectivity provided by these airports can be enhanced.

London City, Southend and Stansted will clearly feature in this review and also the other UK airports that have or could have international connections.  Also presumably into focus comes RAF Northolt, currently used by commercial civil traffic but without scheduled services. (See COMMENT above)
The call for evidence closes on 25 July.  Responses should be sent to airport.utilisation@airports.gsi.gov.uk   www.gov.uk/government/organisations/airports-commission
