There has been no recent discussion between the Secretary of State for Transport and either the FCO or the DIT on this topic. The revised draft Airports National Policy Statement sets out that the government expects an expanded Heathrow Airport to include at least fourteen domestic routes, compared to the eight routes currently in operation and to support the development of long haul routes to and from the UK, especially to emerging and developing markets.
