A third runway at Heathrow has been approved
A third runway at Heathrow Airport has been given the green light by the Government.
The expansion is set to offer more direct flights to UK destinations as well as new flights to up to 40 cities abroad including, Wuhan, Osaka and Quito.
Transport Secretary Chris Grayling said the "truly momentous" decision would support trade and create jobs. According to The Department for Transport, the new runway will create around 77,000 local jobs over the next 14 years.
The construction of Heathrow’s new runway will not commence until 2020 or 2021, the Airports Commission has said.
