BBC TODAY programme interview this morning, 25 June 2008, was with BAA’s chief executive:

Heathrow’s third runway ‘needed’

Colin Matthews says Heathrow’s capacity must be expanded to include a third runway if it is to continue to compete.

Also today there is a brief video clip on the same topic:

Heathrow ‘needs a third runway’

Britain’s busiest airport, Heathrow, is “jam-packed” and needs a third runway to remain competitive globally, the head of its operator, BAA, says.

Colin Matthews spoke to the BBC’s Tom Symonds ahead of an aviation conference speech.

  1. hello everyone … we are doing a topic on heatrow expansions at the moment, and would appreciate some information to put in the reasearch. what are your opinions on the expansion, and what environmental impacts will there be?

  2. Leisure travel agents and UK business remain positive about bookings regardless of the deprived economic outlook, as per a survey by Amadeus, a distribution system firm and travel technology.

  3. Without denying the fact that it is possible to remain blindly optimistic in the face of an abundance of indications to the contrary, I do wonder what part of the planet that Amadeus survey covered.
    Passenger numbers have fallen off dramatically, and as I write the latest front page headline breaking news in the Times Online is this article from its business section:

    Latest:BA makes record £401m loss in ‘toughest year’
    The British flag carrier plunged into the red over the year due to falling passenger numbers and fuel costs

    CBI chief attacks Brown’s ‘economic vandalism’
    BA forced to fly lighter at front of cabin
    BA premium passengers fall 17.7 per cent in April
