FTA: Heathrow expansion delay will be short once implications known

THE news that the building of a third runway at London Heathrow Airport is to be delayed by one year has prompted the UK's Freight Transport Association's policy manager Zoe McLernan to assert that the FTA is confident it 'will be only a short pause to allow stakeholders time to reflect and find a solution on charging and costs that works for everyone

THE news that the building of a third runway at London Heathrow Airport is to be delayed by one year has prompted the UK's Freight Transport Association's policy manager Zoe McLernan to assert that the FTA is confident it 'will be only a short pause to allow stakeholders time to reflect and find a solution on charging and costs that works for everyone.'

'FTA supports expansion at Heathrow, and at other airports around the UK, to provide vital global links for Britain's trade.' said Ms McLernan, reported London's Air Cargo News.



'Air cargo already accounts for 40 per cent of imports and exports by value, and more capacity is urgently required. Air cargo growth at Heathrow has stalled because it is operating at full capacity,' she said.



The FTA represents members who are active in the road, rail, sea and air sectors, as well as buyers of freight services such as retailers and manufacturers.
