London is already under economic threat because of the lack of runway capacity.“A third runway at Heathrow would bring relatively swift economic benefits generating between £8.6bn and £12.8bn through increased productivity and around £20bn in wider benefits including new jobs.”London mayor Boris Johnson backed the report, and called for a new airport to be constructed, urging a reconsideration of his idea for a new hub in the Thames estuary.
