The GTMC team.

Today, we put our weight behind a call for our political leaders to stop dithering on building new runways, which is threatening jobs, growth and everyone’s economic prosperity.

Will you join us?

Amazingly, Britain hasn’t built a new full runway in London and the South East since World War 2. Politicians have always found it easier to put off the hard choices.

In fact, they STILL won’t admit that we need a new runway to secure future growth, despite the Government’s Airports Commission stating clearly that we do.

Germany, France and the Netherlands are all racing ahead of our country. They have better connections to new and emerging markets around the world, making it easier for them to trade.

By the 2020s, we will be running out of space (Heathrow is already full, Gatwick will be full be 2020 and most of London’s airports full soon after), but it will take ten years to deliver a new runway. We must start now.

That’s why we created the Let Britain Fly Pledge. It tells MPs and Ministers to admit: we need new runways.

Last week a range of business leaders said ‘enough is enough’ and signed the Pledge. We have the support of companies including Aberdeen Asset Management, Canary Wharf Group, Harrods, Linklaters, Radisson Edwardian, SEGRO, Selfridges and around 100 other businesses.

But you can’t leave it just to these business leaders to make the case. We need your support too. Please add your name TODAY to the Let Britain Fly Pledge:

 Please add your name and call on MPs to support this important cause. Together, we can make this happen.
