To ensure our long term connectivity needs can be met, the previous Government established the independent Airports Commission to identify and recommend to Government options for maintaining this country’s status as an international hub for aviation.

Three options for expansion have been shortlisted by the Commission for further consideration and the relevant documents can be found on the Airport Commission website: https://www.gov.uk/government/organisations/airports-commission

Following publication of the Commission’s final report with recommendations to Government, we will carefully consider the evidence and set out our plans for taking this forward.
