British forwarders want lift-off for third Heathrow runway

Heathrow Airport.

The British International Freight Association (Bifa) has joined the chorus of people urging Parliament to have an early vote on plans for a third Heathrow runway.

Following parliamentary approval, construction could begin in 2020, with the third runway operational before 2030.

“We should not forget that the government gave its backing to the development of a new runway at Heathrow in October 2016,” said Robert Keen, Bifa’s director general said.

“Our message to government has not changed: It really is well beyond time for action to be taken on this matter.”
