Keep night flights, urges CBI

[ April 26, 2013   //   ]

The CBI urged the Government to maintain night flights at London’s three main airports – Heathrow, Gatwick and Stansted – in its response to a Department for Transport consultation which closed on 21 April. It said that night flights play a key role in aviation and generate millions of pounds in investment and exports.

Rhian Kelly, CBI Director for Business Environment, said: “Night flights  oil the cogs of the express delivery industry so freight arriving overnight can be shipped first thing in the morning.

CBI argues that with the current system working well, it makes no sense to make major changes when the independent Airports Commission is looking at the long-term future of industry.
