2.2

Economic prosperity brings with it greater demand for
travel. As people get wealthier, they can afford to
travel further and more often. They can also afford to
pay for goods and services brought from further afield.

2.3

In the case of aviation this trend has been amplified
by technological advances, cost efficiencies and
strengthened competition within the industry, which
have brought air travel within the reach of many more
people. In an era of increasing globalisation, foreign
travel – whether for pleasure or on business – is now
a common experience. The increasing affordability of
air travel has opened up new destinations and
possibilities; it has expanded people’s horizons,
opportunities and expectations.

2.4

As a result, we have seen a five-fold increase in air
travel over the last 30 years. Half the population of
the UK now flies at least once a year. And freight
traffic at UK airports has doubled since 1990.

The Strategic Framework

2.5

Britain’s economy is in turn increasingly dependent on
air travel. One third of our visible exports, by value,
now go by air. Exports of services, which depend on
the ability to travel by air, make up a further eight per
cent of our national income. Around 25 million foreign
visitors a year contribute to a tourist industry that
directly supports more than two million jobs; two
thirds of these visitors come by air. Businesses
coming to Britain are attracted by our good air links,
and airports are a magnet for other forms of
development. In an increasingly competitive global
marketplace, Britain’s continuing success as a place
in which to invest and do business depends crucially
on the strength of our international transport links.

2.6

The aviation industry itself makes an important
contribution to our economy. It directly supports around
200,000 jobs, and indirectly up to three times as many.
In a tough competitive environment, UK airport
operators and UK-based carriers of all types are
leadersin their fields, whose success brings significant
economic benefits to this country. An illustration of this is
the fact that one fifth of all international air passengers in
the world are on flights to or from a UK airport.

Air services are important for the economic vitality of Scotland, Wales and Northern
Ireland, and the English regions. They offer rapid access to other parts of the country,
and essential connections to a range of European and global markets. For some
communities, like those in the Scottish Highlands and Islands or Isles of Scilly, air
services are quite simply a lifeline.
