Commenting on the news that the government has approved a third runway at Heathrow to expand UK airport capacity, Inderneel Singh, Managing Director, Edwardian Hotels London, said:
“We have supported the expansion of Heathrow airport for a long time. For us, it is vital that the UK continues to increase its attractiveness as a destination for tourist and international business visitors. For our hospitality business, this is crucial. We want to see more guests visiting us from Asia and North America in the very near future.
Heathrow was always the obvious choice for expansion, not only because millions of visitors to Britain already fly there and it has strong relationships with key airlines, but also because of the excellent transport links and existing infrastructure provisions. The expansion will alleviate the existing pressure and we hope to see increased frequency to states such as New York and airlines putting on new routes to key Asian cities.
The UK will benefit significantly from this decision. It is even more important today, post Brexit that the country competes with other major European and global cities when it comes to aviation opportunities.”
