David Cameron is hopeful that the new runway extension at Birmingham Airport will provide a major boost to the economy of the West Midlands.
The runway will provide 4,000 jobs in Birmingham along with another 4,000 in the supply chain.
Prime Minister, David Cameron, is set to announce 8,000 new jobs at Birmingham Airport later today.
The jobs come as a result of a 40 million pound runway extension due to be operational next month.
Half of the jobs will be created on site and the other half will be within the supply chain.
