Why Heathrow expansion would be good for LJLA

Expanding Heathrow will keep Liverpool and the whole North West at the heart of the global economy

We have welcomed the recent Airports Commission recommendation that of the three schemes shortlisted for expanding aviation capacity in the UK, the proposal for a new northwest runway at Heathrow Airport, presents the strongest case and offers the greatest strategic and economic benefits.

Capacity constraints in the South East have meant that the opportunity for regional airports such as Liverpool to re-establish regular flights to a London hub airport has simply not existed for some time.  However the renaissance of the Liverpool City Region has meant that the demand for improved global connectivity is greater now than at any point in the past 20 years. With so many developments and improvements to showcase across the region and more demand for international business and leisure travel, the lack of global connectivity via the UK’s hub airport hinders the region’s greater potential for success in an internationally competitive market.

We will soon have an interline service from LJLA to Amsterdam Schiphol Airport operated by Flybe, Europe’s largest regional airline who will start operating this new route in early September opening up worldwide connectivity once again. Then in October, Aer Lingus will commence flights from Liverpool to Dublin, with onward connections on their long haul services to the US to also enhance access to global markets from Liverpool. Links to an expanded London Heathrow Airport would complement these services, with ample demand for the growing range of destinations that will be available via the UK’s hub airport.

An expanded Heathrow would offer the opportunity for UK airports such as Liverpool, to further grow their networks, something that is crucial for generating growth across the whole country, not just London and the south east.

We have been a supporter of this proposal for some time as has The Chamber, recognising Heathrow Airport’s expansion plans as the best proposal for the country and have been working with Heathrow to generate support from other stakeholders across the region.

Expanding Heathrow will keep Liverpool and the whole North West at the heart of the global economy and they intend to create the world’s best connected, most efficient and most environmentally responsible hub airport at the heart of an integrated transport system. Heathrow is ready to connect Liverpool to global growth at the earliest opportunity and will now work with the government to deliver it.

There is still a long way to go before this proposal becomes a reality and we now urge the Government to make a decision and give the go ahead for this important expansion of Heathrow, so that we too can benefit from the opening up of access to the UK’s hub airport for improved worldwide connectivity.

Airlines are more likely to invest in a service to LJLA, if they are certain that the corporate demand exists and that the market will support a potential new route. Let us know your demands.
