We're confident about our recovery
We're looking forward - as we set out our plans to bring our existing Northern Runway into routine use.
We propose to use our Northern Runway in dual operations with our Main Runway. Our plans meet all global safety standards.
Our plans would reduce delays, bring new global connections and allow us to grow. We could serve 75 million passengers a year by 2038. Other elements of the proposals include improved airport and highway access. Plus, more landscaping and green planting.
Our plans are a low impact way to unlock new capacity by using what we already have. We will also secure our long term growth, generate 18,400 extra jobs and £1.5 billion for the local area and region by 2038.
While current traffic is low due to COVID-19, we are confident about our recovery. We're taking our proposal forward now; due to the time it will take to gain the necessary approvals. We've also factored in the time it will take to construct and start operations.
