AOA criticises Lib Dem manifesto

Commenting on the aviation measures announced in the Liberal Democrat general election manifesto yesterday, Karen Dee, chief executive of the Airport Operators Association, the trade body for UK airports, said:

“The aviation measures announced in the Liberal Democrat manifesto yesterday will only serve to undermine the UK’s competitiveness while doing little to address the sustainability and decarbonisation of air travel.

 UK aviation has a clear and robust plan – as set out in the Sustainable Aviation Road-Map – which demonstrates how it will meet its climate change obligations without the need for burdensome and counter-productive policies such as these.
