The Government is committed to ensuring that expansion at Heathrow will not only protect existing routes, but also provides additional connectivity across the UK, with new routes from Scotland, Northern Ireland as well as the South West and North East of England. We are currently preparing a draft National Policy Statement, which will be published in the new year.
