Northern Powerhouse “at risk” unless Government expands Heathrow


Category: London, The North

Chief Executive of Heathrow, John Holland-Kaye has warned the Government that its Northern Powerhouse project is “at risk” unless Heathrow is expanded with a third runway. Delivering a keynote speech at the International Festival of Business in Liverpool, he presented new research by Frontier Economics which estimates that £710million for the North of England is lost in trade every year as a result of the Government’s “inaction” on expanding Heathrow’s capacity, as passengers are forced to fly via other international airports.
