star this property answer text <p>The Department for Transport has estimated the number of additional local jobs expected to be created by airport expansion in both 2030 and 2050. The Heathrow Northwest Runway scheme is expected to generate between 57,000 and 114,000 additional local jobs by 2030, and between 39,000 and 78,000 additional local jobs by 2050.</p><p> </p><p>Additional jobs are a result of higher passenger traffic being generated at the airport. Expansion at Heathrow will lead to a significant increase in passenger numbers, which will continue beyond 2050. This is expected to create local jobs that are sustainable in the long-run.</p> more like this

star this property answer text <p>Airport charges at Heathrow Airport have fallen by almost £2 per passenger in real terms since 2014. In the context of expansion, the Civil Aviation Authority will determine an appropriate level of airport charges in line with its statutory duty to further the interest of consumers. The Secretary of State also set out a clear ambition in 2016 for airport charges to remain as close as possible to current levels.</p><p> </p><p>The Airports Commission found that if there were any increase in charges at Heathrow as a result of expansion this would likely be absorbed by airlines, with passenger fares remaining unaffected or even falling further after the capacity constraints are released. The Government is also clear that the expansion of Heathrow will provide a significant boost to passengers and the wider economy even if airport charges were to increase modestly, and were passed on to passengers.</p><p> </p> more like this

This support includes discounted charges for domestic passengers at Heathrow, and a £10 million Route Connectivity Fund for domestic services to and from Heathrow.</p><p> </p><p>The Government will also take action, where appropriate, to secure routes through the use of Public Service Obligations (PSOs). PSOs provide the opportunity to offer exclusive rights to airlines to operate a route. The Government currently provides subsidies for three PSO routes to London: Newquay to Gatwick; Londonderry to Stansted; and Dundee to Stansted.</p><p> </p><p>The Government’s approach to domestic connectivity will be set out in a Green Paper on the Aviation Strategy towards the end of this year, and the extent to which subsidies may be required can only be determined subject to market conditions nearer to the time at which new capacity becomes operational.</p>
