business CONCERNS about uk AIR LINKS AND whether the Airports Commission’s FINDINGS will be delivered

Less than half of senior financial decision-makers are satisfied with UK air links to existing, traditional overseas markets and emerging overseas markets; and fewer than two in five have confidence that the solutions put forward by Sir Howard Davies’ Airports Commission to address long-term connectivity needs will be delivered. These are the key findings of a ComRes survey commissioned by the Airport Operators Association (AOA), which questioned 500 UK senior business decision-makers this month.

The poll comes ahead of the Annual AOA Conference on 21 & 22 October, which will see Sir Howard Davies delivering a keynote address, and just two months before the Airports Commission is due to publish an Interim Report setting out a shortlist of options for maintaining the UK’s status as an international hub for aviation.

The survey found:

·         Less than half of senior financial decision-makers in the UK say that they are very or fairly satisfied with UK air links to existing, traditional overseas markets (49%), and just two fifths (43%) say they are satisfied with UK air links to emerging overseas markets (43%).

·         Fewer than two in five senior financial decision makers in the UK (37%) say they have confidence that the Airports Commission’s solutions for the UK’s long term connectivity needs will be delivered, with a similar proportion (36%) saying they do not have confidence the solutions will be delivered.
