Gatwick Airport management has responded with a short statement regarding the UK government’s approval of a third runway at rival Heathrow. Gatwick was seeing approval for a second runway.
Gatwick chief executive Stewart Wingate, said: “We are disappointed as we do not believe this is the right answer for Britain. Gatwick has put forward a credible financeable and deliverable plan for expansion.
“It is a plan that can guarantee growth and guarantee certainty for Britain. We look forward to studying the full reasons behind the Government decision in detail.
“The challenges facing Heathrow have not changed. Our message today is that Gatwick stands ready to proceed when the time comes.”
