Virgin Atlantic has called on the Government to make a decision on airport capacity after Number 10 insisted there was no third runway to be built at Heathrow.
Heathrow is full. The country can’t afford for the issue of airport capacity to be ducked any longer.
The Government needs to develop a long-term credible aviation policy and fast. In every other leading country, aviation is expanding and is injecting much needed growth across the wider economy.
David Cameron has been challenged by senior backbencher Tim Yeo to show whether he's a man or a mouse over expansion at Heathrow.
The Coalition will keep its pledge not to build a third runway at Heathrow Airport despite renewed pressure, Downing Street said.
