Transcripts and supporting witness presentations from public evidence sessions held in Manchester and London on 9 and 10 July 2013.
This page contains the transcripts of the Airports Commissions’ public evidence sessions held in Manchester and London on 9 and 10 July 2013, and, where applicable, links to the presentations given by witnesses in support of their opening remarks.
Thirteen organisations gave evidence to the commission on the subjects covered by our series of discussion papers which we published earlier this year.
The discussion papers set out the commissions’ current understanding of aviation demand forecasting, the role of aviation connectivity in the economy, aviation and climate change and the airport operational models employed by the industry and sought contributions from stakeholders to build the evidence base to inform its assessment of the UK’s future aviation need.
The public evidence sessions concluded the Airports Commission’s public engagement process on its discussion papers.
