In the Spring Budget the Chancellor George Osborne announced a Government Study into the viability of re-opening Plymouth Airport. The study is being undertaken by the Department for Transport. FlyPlymouth has been closely involved in the preparations for the study.
Initially it had been hoped that it would be concluded by Christmas. However, in common with many infrastructure projects, delays occur for a variety of reasons. We now expect the study to be concluded some time in 2016.
We remain in close contact with our MPs regarding the Government's role in supporting the re-opening of Plymouth Airport and are confident the outcome of the study will conclude that Plymouth Airport is a vital part of the South West's transport infrastructure and is capable of being operated successfully.
