Support Gatwick Obviously
There is a critical need for those businesses that do support expansion at Gatwick, to publically “Support” via the Gatwick Obviously website, and preferably respond to the Davies Commission public consultation before closing date 3rd February.
Britain doesn’t just need a new runway. What it really needs is two world class airports.
Other truly global cities like New York, Paris, and Tokyo don’t rely on one mega hub to serve all of their air travel requirements. They spread capacity through a network of airports, giving passengers more options and more opportunities to fly – exactly what Britain needs for the future.
Gatwick already flies direct to more destinations than any other UK airport – expanding here would not only strengthen our routes to emerging markets, it would also relieve pressure and free up hub capacity at Heathrow.
But it’s not just the British economy that stands to benefit from a system of two world class airports. Passengers will also enjoy better service and lower fares as a result of greater competition in the industry.
After decades of delays, Britain needs a decision – and it must be the right one. Gatwick can build a new runway much faster with minimal disruption, less environmental impact and without requiring any funding from the taxpayer. Our country can get the runway we need at a price everyone can afford.
We can’t be sure what’s over the horizon, but we’re certain that it’s going to involve change. With two world class airports working together for our country, we’ll have the flexibility to meet that change head on and connect Britain to the future faster
