Responding to the announcement today that a Thames Estuary airport has not been shortlisted by the Airports Commission, Gatwick Airport Chief Executive Stewart Wingate, said:

Responding to the CBI’s report on airport expansion, a Gatwick Airport spokesperson said:
“We wholeheartedly agree that the single most important consideration for the Commission is the ability to recommend a solution that is both speedy and deliverable. Expansion at Gatwick is the only option which meets all the CBI's objectives of deliverability, access to new markets, and promoting greater competition.
“A new runway at Gatwick would liberate capacity for more hub traffic at Heathrow and provide UK plc with two world class airports, able to address all travel markets and airline models. It would foster competition between airport and airlines, without reversion to a less competitive environment that has already been deemed against the public interest.
“Once you take into account existing developments in aircraft technology and current aviation trends, it is clear that Gatwick is the best and obvious solution. We are surprised that in forming a view of the future of aviation policy, the CBI has chosen not to address the future of the industry itself."

Responding to a letter published today by Heathrow about the UK's airports expansion debate, a Gatwick Airport spokesperson said: “We will await the outcome of the Airports Commission’s decision on the Estuary option before commenting. If the option is taken off the table we will write privately to the Mayor, giving him the respect he deserves.“Building a second runway at Gatwick will deliver two world class airports and competition, which will lead to lower air fares and greater choice for passengers and business. It will also help make Heathrow better; their expensive charges would come down and they would be better incentivised to alleviate 'Heathrow Hassle', which has blighted British travellers for years.“Building a third runway at Heathrow will, in our view, diminish the choice available to ordinary British passengers, making it more expensive to go on holiday, to travel for business and to export goods and services. We support competition, reduced fares and two world-class airports serving the UK as a whole. As the Mayor himself said: “Why on earth entrench a huge planning error and expand Heathrow and consign future generations to misery...?””

Responding to comments made by the Mayor of London on the UK airports expansion debate in an Evening Standard interview, CEO of London Gatwick Stewart Wingate said:
"We share the Mayor's passion for wanting to keep London the best connected city in the world and limit the environmental damage to the Capital. What we need now is certainty that additional runway capacity will be delivered, and Gatwick is the obvious choice – it is deliverable and affordable, and is the best option for passengers.
“Expanding Gatwick would allow Heathrow to get better but not bigger, creating two world class airports in London that would compete to provide more connections to the rest of the world and better customer service. To do otherwise would diminish the choice available to ordinary British passengers, making it more expensive to go on holiday, to travel for business and to export goods and services.
“We support competition, reduced fares and two world-class airports serving the UK as a whole.
“Expanding Gatwick would also deliver £90 billion of economic benefit and create around 120,000 jobs across the UK.”

A Gatwick Spokesperson said:
“Gatwick agrees that future infrastructure development, particularly airport capacity, is vital to Britain’s future. Implicit in the need to bring on new infrastructure is the requirement that any solution is deliverable and is not hampered by complex political, environmental or construction issues. In this respect, Gatwick’s ability to open a new runway more quickly by 2025, at a much lower financial and environmental cost than other options, is a significant advantage.
“The solution must also be one that increases the choice available to British passengers making it cheaper to go on holiday, travel on business or export goods and services. Building a new runway at Gatwick would encourage vigorous competition and give the UK two world-class London airports.”Notes
