The Airports Commission is independent and was set up by the Government to examine how best the UK can maintain its international connectivity.

Having agreed an overarching procurement approach with the Department for Transport, the commission’s work programme and spending decisions within its agreed budget are matters for it. Potential increases in expenditure which cannot be met within the commission’s existing budget will be considered by DFT alongside other priorities across the Department.
