Surface transport to airports inquiry

Inquiry

The Transport Committee says that Government failure to take a clear lead on integrated transport planning is a major obstacle to better surface access to the UK's airports. The Committee urges Government to set out an integrated transport plan which connects airports across the country, boosting regional access and economic development.

Government Response


The Transport Committee is undertaking an inquiry into surface transport at airports. The inquiry examines whether strategic connections to airports fulfil current and future requirements in terms of range and capacity.
