Motion text

That this House notes with dismay the decision by British Airways (BA) to withdraw all of its direct international flights, particularly the New York service, from Manchester Airport; believes this is just the latest example of BA's lack of commitment to the regions of the UK; recognises the consequences of service withdrawal will mean massive inconvenience for many North West residents and added pressure on an already struggling Heathrow Airport; is concerned about the environmental impact of extra short-haul flights that will be needed when direct international flights are cancelled; and calls upon BA to reconsider its decision.
