RAeS debates airports

The future of UK airport capacity and regional air connectivity following the publication of the Airports Commission’s final report is to be the subject of a special seminar at the Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS) in London next Thursday, 3 December.

Speakers at the event, organised by the Westminster Energy, Environment and Transport Forum, include Louise Ellman MP, chair of the Transport Select Committee; Charles Kirwan-Taylor, corporate affairs and sustainability director for Gatwick, and Captain Jock Lowe, director, Heathrow Hub.

Delegates will examine the commission’s final recommendations and the next steps for policy, as well as the future of alternative proposals for Gatwick and Heathrow in the context of the government indicating it will make a decision by the end of the year. 

Other sessions will assess priorities for regional airports in light of the start-up funding for new routes announced in March as part of the Regional Air Connectivity Fund.

The Royal Aeronautical Society is at 4 Hamilton Place, W1J 7BQ.   www.westminsterforumprojects.co.uk/forums/event.php?eid=1097&t=14125
