Maintaining these connections is vital in demonstrating that the UK is a great place for travellers to visit. They also provide entry to global markets for thousands of businesses across the country, attracting further investment that allows the UK to succeed.

Simplifying airspace will also allow airlines to fly new routes to and from the UK, providing more chances for businesses up and down the country to forge new global connections, and diversify their exporting and importing opportunities.

Alongside this, upgrading our airspace will enable the UK aviation industry to take full advantage of new and emerging aviation technologies. These will help to drive further growth across the industry and the country, as well as helping to maintain the UK aviation sector’s global standing.
