Heathrow Runway Takes Off
Dr Andreas Hoepner, shares his thoughts on the long-awaited and much disputed decision regarding the Heathrow airport expansion.
Especially in light of the significant threat that a hard Brexit poses to the English and Welsh economy, it is crucial to remain internationally competitive in logistical aspects.
London Heathrow, Britain's leading airport, has two runways, which is simply underwhelming when compared with all rival airports: Paris's CDG, Frankfurt's Fraport, Amsterdam's Schiphol, Dublin's Shannon and Denmark's Kastrup.
So with immigration times for the average passenger going up following Brexit, Heathrow capabilities to process airplanes also need to enhance, otherwise the overall passenger experience is bound to decline despite the usually excellent service of both local airlines BA and Virgin.
