Gatwick business disappointment at Davies Commission decision
01 July 2015
Gatwick business leaders have, today, expressed their disappointment at the decision of Sir Howard Davies to recommend that a third runway be built at Heathrow.
Commenting on the decision, Rosemary French, Executive Director of the Gatwick Diamond Initiative, said: “The business community is understandably disappointed that the Davies Commission has not recommended a second runway at Gatwick. We continue to believe that this is the most financially, politically, physically and environmentally deliverable solution for growth in UK aviation capacity over the next 30 years. While we await with interest the government’s final decision, our world class airport – Gatwick - will continue to grow and benefit the UK economy.”
