It’s Time for the South to Shine; Second Gatwick Runway Debate Continues

 

 

Gatwick chief has spoken and said that a second runway would complete the scope of the capital’s rebirth. The chief said this at a high level debate that was hosted by the city’s mayor.  David McMillan, Gatwick non executive director also added that a second runway at the airport would create jobs as well as boost business.

Speaking at the “shaping a growing London” event, the Gatwick airport director highlighted the influence of West and North London, and also the growth of East London. He added that only the expansion of the airport would result to total transformation of the capital. This would deliver an Olympic-style boost to south London, he added. Emphasizing the airport’s expansion as best positioned to meet the dynamic needs of the future aviation, he continued; that Gatwick’s second runway is a once in a lifetime chance, not only to gear up UK’s future aviation needs, but also drive extensive economic and regeneration benefits.

He proceeded; with North and West London already doing so well and the East starting to thrive from a post Olympics boost, the second runway question offers the South a long overdue time to excel. Gatwick Airport expansion would be a perfect catalyst for the regeneration of areas such as Lewisham, Croydon,   Wandsworth and Merton. This will create new jobs as well as business opportunities.

McMillan also added that aviation is constantly evolving, and thus the capital needs a supple airport solution. The expansion of Gatwick does just that and as a matter of fact, it’s the only option offering a flexible future.  This would also create greater choice, lower fares as well as more travel chances on London routes and without congestion and noise over the capital. He also said that the Gatwick’s expansion is the most appropriate choice for London and the UK as a whole.
