A report out today by Heathrow Airport is calling for a London "hub" airport. Interestingly this doesn't stress the need for a third runway. Is it that investors are not keen on risk?
Heathrow Airport chief executive Colin Matthews says: "We say a hub (airport) matters but actually does it matter to the country as a whole?
"The economic analysis we published today suggests it really does."
A lack of space to land planes at Heathrow airport is costing the UK up to 14 billion pounds a year in lost trade. A new report says the figure could rise. Bosses at the airport have been pushing for a third runway but government officials have ruled it out for the time being.
