Motion text

That this House welcomes the Government's commitment to regional air services and recognises the important role that regional airports play in the creation of jobs and prosperity; notes with concern the increasing problem of congestion at Heathrow and Gatwick airports and the growing pressure of development in the South-East; welcomes the limited extension by this Government of 3rd and 4th Freedom rights, but believes that this does not go far enough; and calls for a fully liberalised unilateral Open Skies policy for regional airports, including 5th Freedoms, which would assist airports in attracting new services, including more long-haul scheduled flights, and lead to new investment and sustainable growth in the regions and a reduction in congestion in the South-East.
