answer text <p>The revised draft Airports National Policy Statement on new runway capacity and infrastructure at airports in the South-East of England considers impacts of Heathrow expansion on airports across the UK. It finds that a North-West runway at Heathrow delivers the best connectivity for the UK as a whole, with regional airports expected to continue displaying strong passenger growth by 2050.</p><p> </p><p>The UK is one of the best connected countries in the world by air, with six airports handling more than five million passengers per annum, offering an intensive short-haul network and an increasing number of long-haul destinations. In addition almost 30 regional airports offer important direct connectivity to key business and leisure destinations.</p><p> </p><p>The Government is developing a new, long-term Aviation Strategy to 2050 and beyond which aims to achieve a safe, secure and sustainable aviation sector that meets the needs of consumers and of a global, outward-looking Britain. A ‘Next Steps’ document published in April, stated that the Government will consider whether our nations and regions are suitably connected by either air or surface access transport to the rest of the UK and to key overseas markets.</p>

answer text <p>The Updated Appraisal Report, published alongside the revised draft Airports National Policy Statement in October 2017, sets out the carbon scenarios used by the Government to address uncertainties over the future policy treatment of international aviation emissions. It confirms that expansion via a Northwest Runway at Heathrow Airport can be delivered within the UK’s carbon obligations under the Climate Change Act 2008.</p><p> </p><p>The Government considers that growth in the aviation sector, including at regional airports, is compatible with the UK's climate change obligations. Even in a scenario where aviation carbon emissions are capped to the Committee on Climate Change’s planning assumption of 37.5 MtCO2, the analysis showed that passenger numbers would continue to grow at regional airports. The Government will continue to develop policy relating to carbon emissions from aviation as part of the new Aviation Strategy.</p> more like this
