Operating resilience of the UK’s aviation infrastructure

We have today launched a consultation aimed at supporting the commitment in our strategic plan to think creatively about how existing capacity can be planned and operated to meet stakeholders’ expectations.

The UK has some of the busiest and most productive airports in the world, facing many challenges in maintaining day to day operating resilience. It will be at least 2025 before any new runway capacity in the South East of England will be opened, so the aviation industry must continue to work towards making existing infrastructure more resilient.
