Changing policies on slots access and Public Service Obligation (PSO routes)

Heathrow wants to ring-fence slots: “to safeguard a certain portion of new air slots for domestic use, and boost connectivity for communities across the country.” What needs to be done to make this happen? “PSO routes are specified by the cities they link, rather than the airports. Heathrow believes it is not just connections to London that matter, but connections through London. Should such change be brought to the Regional Air Connectivity Fund or could it recognise these values under its existing statutes?


15:00 - 15:30

Location: London Olympia

Star presentation

A easyJet Heathrow Base: In evidence to the Airports Commission easyJet said: “Heathrow Expansion will allow low cost, short haul airlines like easyJet to operate – providing more competition, new routes, more services and lower fares. Heathrow also has the greatest demand from passengers of all types – business and leisure, long and short haul, inbound and outbound.” How ambitious are the network plans for easyJet’s Heathrow Base? Would it offer the most viable solutions to domestic and short-haul connectivity? Can easyJet maintain huge bases at both Heathrow and Gatwick without risk of dilution? Who might easyJet feed at Heathrow (and how)?
