Heathrow: expansion 'will boost the North'

Airport - Heathrow has pushed for a third runway - SantanderCB

Heathrow has attempted to push the government into approving a third runway by warning that its Northern Powerhouse idea is at risk if it is not allowed to expand.
 
It claimed that the North of England is losing £710m in import and export trade every year because Heathrow is full, which is forcing long-haul fliers to and from UK regional airports to travel via hubs abroad.

It said research from Frontier Economics found an extra £1.7bn of trade, including in Scotland and Northern Ireland, would be facilitated every year if Heathrow's connectivity to regional airports was boosted by expansion.
