London Mayor Boris Johnson has given his blessing to the new six-runway option for a Thames Estuary airport, saying:
“This is further welcome argument in favour of the feasibility of having a new hub airport in the Thames estuary.
With so many options available for a multi-runway hub airport in a new location, it would be folly for the Airports Commission to give countenance to the prospect of expanding Heathrow, the most noise-polluting airport in Europe.”
