LCY chief pleased by Heathrow move

The Wharf - - The Week -

The CEO of Lon­don City Air­port has wel­comed the de­ci­sion to build a third run­way at Heathrow.

De­clan Col­lier said the move, which has prompted the res­ig­na­tion of MP Zac Gold­smith, was “good news for busi­ness, good news for tourism and good news for Bri­tain”.

He said: “A new run­way in the South East will cre­ate much needed ca­pac­ity, help­ing se­cure the UK’s po­si­tion as a global hub. Ap­prov­ing de­vel­op­ment at Lon­don City Air­port ear­lier this year showed the Gov­ern­ment’s readi­ness to act in the best in­ter­ests of the Bri­tish econ­omy as it will gen­er­ate more eco­nomic ac­tiv­ity and cre­ate more jobs at the air­port.”
