RAF Northolt becoming commercial airport 'in all but name', says MP
Gareth Thomas says military base in west London is hosting 10,000 passenger flights a year and this number could quintuple
A military airport used frequently by the royal family has become a commercial hub by stealth, hosting 10,000 passenger flights a year, a Labour MP has said.
Gareth Thomas, the MP for Harrow West, said local residents had not been consulted over further changes at RAF Northolt in west London, including a proposal that would increase the number of commercial flights to 50,000 a year.
