Regional Air Services

EDM number 779 in 1998-99, proposed by David Stewart on 30/06/1999.

That this House recognises the importance of direct air links between regional airports and London as a vital element in an integrated transport policy; acknowledges the role of Heathrow and Gatwick as key European hub airports with unrivalled interlining capability with medium and long haul destinations; notes the relationship between strong Heathrow/regional links and tourism, inward investment, movement of cargo and efficient business communications; further notes the transfer of Heathrow slots by airline companies from domestic services to international destinations; and urges Her Majesty's Government to consider utilising the Public Service Obligations designation on key strategic routes in order to retain or enhance regional air services.

This motion has been signed by a total of 111 MPs, 1 of these signatures have been withdrawn.
