Heathrow hints it may oppose ban on night flights as price for third runway
Chief executive says airport needs to discuss Davies commission requirements, including outlawing fourth runway, with government
Heathrow is to press the government to loosen the conditions attached to a third runway going ahead, with the airport reluctant to accept a proposed ban on night flights or legislation against further expansion.
Its chief executive, John Holland-Kaye, said he was confident Heathrow would be given the green light to expand and that “it wouldn’t make sense” for the prime minister, David Cameron, to oppose a new runway now.
