IAG CEO: New capacity at Heathrow must be affordable

International Airlines Group (IAG) welcomed (25-Oct-2016) UK's government recommending a third runway at London Heathrow Airport, while stating it is "pleased that the government has recognised the cost to customers must not increase from today's level". IAG CEO Willie Walsh said: "Heathrow is the world's most expensive hub airport so it's critical that new capacity is affordable. The airport has consistently argued that the British economy will benefit if the third runway is approved. Heathrow want it, argued for it and now must ensure it's the UK and the travelling public who get the benefits from the runway not the airport's owner". [more - original PR]
