Welcoming the Scottish Government's endorsement of a third runway at Heathrow as best for Scotland, Heathrow CEO John Holland-Kaye said:

“An expanded Heathrow would create up to 16,000 jobs in Scotland.  It would facilitate more airlines flying routes to Scottish airports, meaning more flights, more competition and choice for families and businesses across the nation.  That also means more visitors to Scotland, more destinations for Scottish tourists and more opportunity for Scottish businesses to reach new export markets.

“This partnership demonstrates how Heathrow expansion can work for every region and nation of the UK. Now is the time for the UK Government to make the right choice and back Heathrow.”
