2507 words - 10 pages

ASSESSMENT CASE STUDY:A NEW LONDON AIRPORT AT CLIFFE1. IntroductionOver the last 50 years there has been a dramatic increase in the amount of air travel across the world and the UK. Especially in the last decade the emergence of the low cost airlines has led to an increased demand for air travel. More and more people fly to destinations, whether it is for business or holidays. This resulted in increased pressure on existing airport capacity especially in the South East of England where demand is highest.There is already a capacity shortfall in the South East, especially at Heathrow where demand is much higher than supply. This shortfall leads to more and more delays. At the moment 65 % of all Heathrow flights are delayed (Department for Transport, 2002) and Gatwick and Stansted are also operating close to capacity limits.With forecasts predicting demand to treble until 2030 the government published a consultation document, "The Future Development of Air Transport in the United Kingdom" which looks at several airport capacity developments. The feedback of this consultation will be used for the new Air Transport White Paper which will provide a policy framework for the next 30 years of British aviation and airports.One of the proposed options is a new major hub airport at Cliffe in North Kent.This report will focus on the new airport in Cliffe and identify the different stakeholders connected to building a new airport and look at the advantages and disadvantages a new airport would bring for them.

Aviation today contributes significantly to the national economy, it is one of the major strengths of the UK economy and as prosperity grows people nowadays expect to be able to fly more and more. In 2001 nearly 50% of the UK population made at least one journey by air(Department of Transport, 2002).But it is not only people going abroad from the UK but also a large number of travellers coming to the UK. Inbound tourism is worth about 13 billion pounds each year which is about 1.5% of the gross domestic product (GDP). This is particularly interesting for the Tourism industry, which relies on good air links as two thirds of international visitors arrive by air. As demand is expected to continue to grow the tourism industry would profit from a new airport as this means that the demand would be met and...
