Hopping Across The North East From Hub To Hub

NECC Responds to Davies Report

unnamed (3)In reaction to today’s Davies Report, North East Chamber of Commerce Chief Executive, James Ramsbotham has said:

“Today’s Davies Report has given the right recommendation. While we want as many direct flights coming in and out of North East airports as possible, an expanded national hub is an essential requirement.

“The economic benefits of a third runway at Heathrow Airport are way in advance of any other options. Many of these benefits are set to be of advantage to regions outside the South East, ourselves included.

“The Commission has done what the Government has asked of it in that their recommendation represents the needs of the United Kingdom as a whole. The onus is now on our politicians to make a final decision and implement this without delay.”
