UK aviation white paper expected this week

The UK Transport Secretary, Justine Greening, is expected to publish the Coalition’s aviation white paper this week before the Budget is announced. The airline industry has low expectations for the paper, calling it yet another whitewash and little more than another “call for evidence”.
As the current government has ruled out a third runway for Heathrow, the paper is expected to focus on other options such as a new airport in the Thames Estuary. However, given that no large-scale plans for a new airport or significant airport expansion have been approved since London City airport opened in the 1980s, airline bosses do not expect any serious movement this time around.
