What is the ‘Airports Commission’?

In 2012 the Government created the Airports Commission to inform their decision of the location for a new runway in the South East of England.

The Airports Commission: final report was in summer 2015 and we now await the Government’s decision.

Please visit the Airports Commission website for more information.

Our role

While the CAA is impartial to the location, we recognise the need for additional runways. We assisted the Airports Commission by responding to consultations and provided our expertise of the aviation industry. The advice we offered covered:

  • environmental concerns
  • the airport commission process
  • the possibility of an inner Thames estuary airport
  • hub airport operations
  • airport capacity – present and future
