Heathrow airport publishes third runway masterplan

LONDON (Reuters) – London Heathrow, the busiest airport in Europe, published its masterplan plan for expansion on Tuesday, including building a controversial third runway and new terminal facilities, at the start of a 12-week statutory consultation.

Emma Gilthorpe, Heathrow’s Executive Director for Expansion, said: “This consultation is an opportunity for people to have their say on our preferred masterplan, so it’s really important that as many people as possible take part.”

Britain has spent decades arguing about building more air capacity in the densely-populated southeast of England.
