On Monday 17 March 2014, Professor Ricky Burdett (on behalf of the Airports Commission) chaired two seminars with key stakeholders. The seminars were an opportunity to meet Professor Burdett and members of the Airports Commission secretariat, and to broaden understanding of important issues covered by the Commission’s Interim Report. Members of the secretariat gave presentations on the following issues:  short and medium term option recommendations; use of scenario testing to inform our view of future demand; assessment of airline operating models; position on a potential 2nd additional runway; conclusion there is no immediate connectivity crisis; and framework for appraising the shortlisted options for additional runway capacity.
