We are extending the Aviation 2050 green paper consultation period to 20 June 2019 to provide further time for stakeholders to consider its proposals and submit their consultation responses.
The extension will not apply to specific questions on legislative airspace change proposals, which have been consulted on alongside the green paper. The closing date for responses to the airspace change legislation questions remains 11 April 2019.
The Department for Transport is seeking feedback on its green paper which outlines proposals for a new aviation strategy. The strategy will set out the challenges and opportunities for aviation to 2050 and beyond and will emphasise the significance of aviation to the UK economy and regional growth.
The strategy will focus on:
- developing a partnership for sustainable growth which meets rising passenger demand, balanced with action to reduce environmental and community impacts
- improving the passenger experience, including through technology and innovation, a new passenger charter and action to reduce delays at the border
- building on the UK’s success to establish new connections across the world and create greater choice for consumers
