London – Europe’s busiest airport, London Heathrow, is expected to undergo an expansion in order to attract more number of visitors. The plan is to construct the third runway which is required to attract traffic by competing with its rivals. Though there were attempts by many environmental groups, namely Friends of the Earth and London Mayor Sadiq Khan to oppose the construction of its third runway, following the approval of the plan by the UK government, the judges rejected the petitions of the environmental groups to block the expansion of the airport.

Hearing the allegations of the opponents regarding the violation of the U.K’s climate change policy and Paris climate accord, the judges said that the agreement does not conform to the UK law. The judges said that the approval of expansion is more concerned with the legal ground instead of the merits of the government policy.

Virgin Atlantic, the airlines which involves more percentage of takeoff and landing spots, supports the construction of the third runway at London Heathrow. It aims to become the UK’s second flag carrier with the expansion. The expansion of the airport has been delayed for many decades due to the concerns regarding extra aircraft noise, increased pollution, destruction of homes and adverse impact on roads. However, the officials said that the construction is going to begin by 2021 with the opening of a new landing strip in 2026. This would shift the annual capacity of travelers to 135 million. Also, it will boost London Airport Transfer’s service on a large scale. With this, services like airporttransfersonline.co.uk, which has been popular for transfer in London and other nearby areas, will be benefitted on a large scale.

The UK parliament gave approval to the construction of the runway as part of its national policy. Since many years, the airport operator has been struggling to build the new runway to increase the capacity of flights. Now, it will be possible for them to expand London Heathrow for getting more traffic.
