The Future of UK Aviation

UK Government consultation

Aviation is a significant sector of the Scottish economy and a critical enabler of economic activity and economic growth. The sector employs thousands of people, supports global supply chains for Scottish firms and connects our exporters’ goods and services to established and emerging markets.

The UK Government is currently consulting on its proposals for a new Aviation Strategy for the UK. The Department for Transport’s Green Paper, Aviation 2050 — The Future of UK Aviation, outlines a focus on improving the passenger experience, increasing regional and global connectivity and delivering sustainable growth of the sector in tandem with reduced environmental and community impacts.

You can read the Green Paper and access further information here.

SCDI will respond to this consultation on behalf of our members. We would welcome your views to inform our submission on the key themes of the Green Paper and your feedback on its specific policy proposals.

Please complete any or all of the form below, or alternatively send in your views. Submit your response to david.kelly@scdi.org.uk before COB MONDAY 20 MAY 2019.
