“FEWER FLIGHTS, LESS NOISE AND MORE JOBS AND TRAINING FOR LOCAL PEOPLE” SAYS WILL CURTIS

Responding to the Bromley Council’s announcement of their consultation, Will Curtis, the airport Managing Director says:

“The airport carried out an extensive borough-wide consultation during October 2014 to which over 15,000 local residents responded.  80% of them made it clear that they support the airport’s proposals for fewer flights, less noise and more jobs and training for local young people.  Our plan can be achieved without increasing flight number, or allowing scheduled airlines, or expanding beyond our existing boundaries.

This represents a huge opportunity for the people of Bromley.  In addition to the rent that Bromley Council receive from the airport, they also receive a share of profit and/or turnover from airport operations each year.  So, the more that the airport earns, the more cash will go to the Council to be available for vital public services such as schools, care for the elderly, emptying dustbins – and more” says Mr Curtis.
