EU Aiport Capacity,- Legislation to the rescue.

The Times today reports that a study for the European Commission on airport capacity concludes that Europe's busiest airports could handle 28 million more passengers per year without additional runways or expansion.More efficient use of slots is said to be part of the solution especially at Heathrow which plans no runway expansion although major work on rebuilding Terminal 2 is in progress and more could follow.

No worries though. The EU Transport Commissioner, Siim Kallas, is said to intend legislation later this year to tackle the issue. Problem solved,- at a stroke.
