The head of Greenpeace’s transport campaign, Vicky Wyatt, said:

“The prime minister made clear that rising carbon emissions were a key reason he opposed the growth of London’s airports so it’s worrying that these new transport proposals seem to put a new emphasis onto aviation growth happening by the back door at regional airports.

The government’s climate plan needs pollution from planes to be kept within limits. Clearly the aviation industry has been ramping up their lobbying efforts but Ministers should learn the lessons of the Labour years and not cave in.”
