Thames Reach Airport encourages the following policy initiatives for a holistic aviation and transport solution:

  • EU Emissions Trading System ETS and future inclusion of surface access component (door to door carbon use) – towards a global agreement
  • VAT – based on global agreement
  • Single European Sky (SES) and Single European Sky ATM Research (SESAR)
  • Air Passenger Duty APD – subject to overall policy
  • Greener aviation – active aircraft taxiing, larger more efficient aircraft,
  • Integrated rail networks in UK and EU

Thames Reach Airport advocates a two staged decision making approach:

  1. Expert “Eastern Alliance” to enable an evidence-based decision, independent of a political influence – to assess alternatives for an integrated solution.
  2. Parliament decides based on the “technical” findings with a broadest possible political consensus.
