Regional Airports are Good News of Local Economies
Developing regional airports helps to stimulate economies, creates jobs and boosts the living standards of local communities. That's the conclusion of new research into the valuable contribution of aviation to the UK economy produced by the Airport Operators Association.
As the general election approaches the aviation debate will intensify and the report contributes to that debate by assessing the industry's economic role, both directly and as a catalyst for the wider economy in terms of wealth creation and employment.
The report maintains that as a regional airport grows, it has positive impacts on the surrounding area in terms of connectivity, trade and investment. For more information about the AOA report, visit http://www.aoa.org.uk/
