HEATHROW AIRPORT - ONE HUB OR NONE?

Home / News & Opportunities / Member News

Date: 27/05/2014

Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce is hosting a ‘One Hub or None’ seminar on 26th June at Worcestershire County Cricket Club.

This is part of a national programme of events organised by The British Chambers of Commerce in association with Heathrow Airport, to hear business opinion on the aviation capacity debate.

The breakfast seminar will take place from 7.30 am - 10.00am and is free to attend for Members and Non Members of the Chamber. The key themes that will be covered include; what can be done to close the £14bn trade gap and why a hub airport is different and uniquely valuable to the UK. Delegates will also have the opportunity to put questions to Heathrow Airport’s executives and share opinions on how this debate affects local business.

Mike Ashton, Chief Executive, Herefordshire and Worcestershire Chamber of Commerce said: "The UK requires world class transport hubs to compete with the likes of Amsterdam, Munich and Paris. Heathrow is one of those and we support it's development. We also see the benefit of developments at Birmingham Airport providing more opportunities for our local business community."

New research from Frontier Economics has shown that the lack of capacity at Heathrow is already costing the UK up to £14bn a year in lost trade and this figure could rise to £26bn a year by 2030.
