Steve Szalay, Operations Director at Southampton Airport, said:
“At every juncture of this process we have been committed to engaging with our neighbours, local communities and businesses alike and have been listening to their feedback. Having once again listened to this feedback and taken into account the changes to the economic position we are operating within, we will refine our application accordingly.
“We’ve always been clear that the runway extension is critical to the survival of Southampton Airport which is why it’s important we take on board all feedback to ensure all stakeholders are aligned, supportive and the right decision is reached for our community. We will be submitting additional information to Eastleigh Borough Council to review early in the New Year.”
