Job creation

Over 120 sites across Britain have bid to become logistics hubs and help build an expanded Heathrow as the airport looks to promote more affordable and sustainable offsite manufacturing while driving job creation outside the South East.

Heathrow expansion

Expansion plans are progressing well, with the Government confirming a parliamentary vote by the end of June 2018, and Heathrow responding to the CAA’s enquiry on the regulatory framework of the expansion. John Holland-Kaye, Chief Executive Officer of Heathrow, said:
“A strong performance over the summer – record numbers of passengers visiting Britain, double-digit growth in exports, strong global investor support and better service and value for passengers – shows what a critical national asset Heathrow has become. "Heathrow expansion is not a choice between the economy and the environment – it must deliver for both. In post-Brexit Britain, it will connect our whole country to the global growth markets of tomorrow and a robust package of environmental commitments will help us expand responsibly. We are now getting on with delivering it.”
