Chief Executive backs third runway proposals at Heathrow Airport

Willie Walsh the Chief Executive of British Airways has announced today that he is backing proposals for a third runway at Heathrow Airport.

"It is a critical piece of national infrastructure and I am 100% behind the proposals. If we want a strong economy and want to be a world centre for business we have to have growth at Heathrow."

He went on to add that Terminal 5 is "on time and on budget" and would see operations at the UK's biggest airport transformed dramatically.

British Airways will use the new terminal primarily leaving the capacity in other terminals for other airlines.
