There is growing expectation that Theresa May will accept the recommendation of Sir Howard Davies’s airports commission to expand Heathrow rather than Gatwick, with cabinet ministers telling the Guardian that the west London plans offered much higher-value returns than the alternative.
A government committee chaired by the prime minister is understood to be on the verge of deciding whether new runway capacity will be added at Gatwick or Heathrow, and industry insiders expect a verdict on 18 October. Heathrow is hoping an 11th-hour push pegged to Brexit will secure approval to build a third runway.
