***Winner of the economic and financial category at Prospect Magazine's Think Tank of the Year Awards 2013***

'Bigger and quieter: the right answer for aviation' examines all the options for increasing airport capacity in the UK. It supports placing four runways immediately west of the current Heathrow site. This would double the existing capacity to 130 million passengers, cementing it as Europe's premier hub.
The report says that the UK needs a new hub airport located in the South East which has spare capacity to accommodate the likely increase in demand, especially to cope with the rise in middle class travellers from emerging markets.
It doesn't rule out the current proposal to build a third runway to the north of Heathrow, but claims that less people would be affected by aircraft noise if the four runways were instead located three kilometres to the west of Heathrow.
