Birmingham Airport Expansion

“Don’t put all your eggs in one basket by focusing purely on the South East and Heathrow in particular.” said Paul Kehoe, Birmingham International Airport's CEO at the Birmingham Business Breakfast Club meeting on the 20th February 2013. With the runway extension available in 2014, a new horizon is opening up for travel and business opportunities at Birmingham Airport. The extended runway gives the opportunity of adding about 2,000 nautical miles to flights. From Birmingham, that takes the traveller“about everywhere you need to go – Tokyo, Beijing, Shanghai, Hong Kong, Bangkok, Singapore." Not surprisingly Mr Kehoe is a keen supporter of HS2 which is a key element increasing the number of flights using the airport and usage byLondon and the South-East travellers. HS2 will reduce journey times to Birmingham Airport from London to under 40 minutes.
