Should Birmingham Airport be expanded?

It seems that everybody is migrating from the South towards the Midlands and as a previous story told, people are choosing to fly from Birmingham rather than London Airports.

But whilst there have been many unfavourable arguments towards the expansion of Birmingham Airport there are also many upsides to it. If there were to be another runway constructed then there would surely be the option of flying to many additional destinations and exotic places.

This could only bring more tourism to Birmingham and open up people’s eyes to what is actually on offer in the West Midlands, but then on the downside there would certainly be more pollution and excessive noise.

The introduction of new cars every year surely also brings about more pollution, doesn’t it?

And on a more selfish point of view I have never as yet seen a Jumbo 747 flying over Birmingham NEC!
