John Holland-Kaye, Chief Executive Officer of Heathrow, said:

“Heathrow’s performance in the last six months has been excellent, improving service to passengers and controlling costs. The Airports Commission’s unanimous and clear recommendation to support Heathrow was warmly welcomed by business leaders and politicians from across the country and closed the debate on where a new runway should be built. Our focus now is on working closely with Government to deliver the benefits of expansion for all of the UK as quickly as possible.”
