Plymouth plays a vital role in the region's economy and wants to help lead the sub-region out of recession. To achieve this it needs good connectivity.
The Government already provides support nationally for road, rail and broadband connectivity and it needs to provide support to regional air connectivity as well.
The airport will require substantial investment to enable it to re-open, meet CAA regulations and to enable larger aircraft to use it in the longer term. The level of investment needed can only be provided by the Government.
This is a national issue because the Government needs good air connectivity in the regions if it is to deliver its growth plans.
Over the last 20 years considerable efforts have been made by a number of parties in Plymouth to support sustainable air links between Plymouth and London and other UK regions.
One of the key reasons why Plymouth Airport closed last year was the pressure on airlines to use the landing slots in London for more lucrative international flights.
The Government needs to recognise the importance of regional air connectivity to economic growth in the UK and ensure extra capacity for regional flights is provided as part of an expansion of capacity in London. This extra capacity for regional air services should be protected.
