Ryanair calls for new runways at 3 London airports

By BFN News | 04:22 PM | Thursday 18 July, 2013

Low-cost airline Ryanair is calling for new runways at Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted airports. The airline says this will finally address runway capacity in the South East for the next 50 years. Ryanair's submission to the Government's Airports Commission dismissed any new 'greenfield' plan such as the one put forward by London Mayor Boris Johnson. Ryanair believes that any new greenfield airport will take many decades to deliver, and will result in vast overspending and inefficiency due to the absence of any existing airport or ground transport infrastructure at any such greenfield site. Ryanair's Michael O'Leary said: "Three new runways at the three competing London airports is the only sensible and consumer focused solution to the chronic runway capacity shortages in London and the South East of England. "We cannot wait 30 years and allow billions of pounds to be wasted on 'Boris Island'." At 4:22pm: (LON:RYA) Ryanair Holdings PLC share price was +0.23p at 7.32p Story provided by
