Tweets of the day:
@AirportWatch Willie Walsh warned ministers against a 2nd Gatwick runway. Says that would over-rule Davies. There’s no business case for expanding Gatwick.
@bbckamal David Cameron gave “guarantee” on runway decision by end of year. Patrick McLoughlin downgrades that to “hopeful” by next summer @BBCr4today.
@bbckamal Willie Walsh, CEO of IAG, runs BA: “To delay [runway] decision shows party politics takes precedence over what is best for the economy.”
@2Cairo Back from a very good trade visit to Tehran promoting Irish aviation @Avalon @Shannon @Iaa lots of potential for business and cooperation.
@JohnLStrickland Willie Walsh #IAG not a queation of letting politicians off the hook #aviation industry has compromised too many times already.
@JohnLStrickland Willie Walsh #IAG Aviation Club. No business case whatsoever for building a second runway at Gatwick.
@trustaviation Willie Walsh on @HeathrowAirport . “Less than 2% of the overall cost of third runway is actually construction costs for a new runway”.
