Our comments on the aviation strategy

Dan Large, CBI Head of Infrastructure, said:

"Aviation has a key role to play in delivering the UK's future prosperity, with potential to make significant contributions to the Government’s wider objectives on regional growth, international trade and industrial strategy.

"The strategy is a once in a generation opportunity to set a clear direction for UK aviation and to answer key questions on issues such as sustainable growth, future technologies and surface transport.

"Businesses across sectors will be looking to the strategy to maximise the strengths and successes of the market, and will engage with the Government to ensure the right policy framework is in place to deliver this."
