Liverpool Chamber of Commerce is calling on the Government to invest in regional airports to achieve better global connectivity and improve surface access.

Responding to the Government’s ‘The Future of UK Aviation’ consultation, the Chamber supports Liverpool John Lennon Airport’s position that regional airports are vital elements of a city asset base and can have a catalysing effect on business but needs the appropriate and sustained governmental interventions to ensure the assets can be maximised. Over 200 of our member businesses trade internationally whilst a great many have benefitted from the influx of tourism to our city region in the past decade. Improved global connectivity is therefore vital to the ongoing growth of the City Region economy.

Ensuring domestic and onward global connectivity to an expanded Heathrow and funding to improve the access routes into the regional airports are key priorities for the City Region and its growth aspirations. A copy of our response can be found here.
