Why increasing UK hub airport capacity is important
Most economic growth over the next 40 years will come from Asia, North America and South America while traditional markets in Europe face a lower growth future. This is why the UK needs better long-haul connections. The UK is in a global race to improve links with emerging economies and deliver the trade, jobs and economic growth that will otherwise go to our international competitors. Only Heathrow will connect the whole of the UK to growth.
