Plea for more use of regional airports
The Government should look to the regions to boost air travel, an airport chief has said.
Access to airports should be improved and tourism to regional areas supported, according to Bristol Airport chief executive Robert Sinclair.
Westminster has appointed former Financial Services Authority chief Sir Howard Davies to head an independent commission which will make its full report on airport capacity needs in summer 2015.
Mr Sinclair said today: “It is critical to remember that significant airport capacity already exists in the UK regions.
“Government policy should encourage the use of this capacity and private sector investment in long-term infrastructure.”
