Busiest month ever for Scots airports

13 Août 2017

Apart from Heathrow, all of London's airports, London City, Gatwick, Stanstead, Southend and Luton, were rated "good". But four airports have not met the CAA's expectations and have been told they must improve.

Transport secretary Chris Grayling, said: 'It is encouraging to see the overwhelming majority of United Kingdom airports providing a good service for passengers with a disability, but I am determined to push the aviation industry to do more.

The airport said it was confident of delivering the project affordably, and its airline partners now expected to grow their businesses faster than Heathrow expected, so there was a possibility of being able to spread the cost of expansion among more passengers using the airport.

"We apologise to those who have been affected and are taking action, including the amendment and retendering of our contract with new and higher standards of service, to ensure passengers who require special assistance, receive the service they rightly deserve".

Other airports in the wider region included Humberside which rated as "Very Good" and Leeds Bradford "Good" while East Midlands and Manchester were ranked as "Poor".

Andrews sent an email to parents making it clear that no such pass would be offered at the school. Our families have been notified this program is not being offered.

Airports are judged on areas like waiting times for assistance, customer satisfaction and consultations with disability organisations.

Richard Moriarty, CAA Director of Consumers and Markets, commented: "UK aviation should be proud that it continues to serve a rapid increase in the number of passengers with a disability". They are not acceptable and fall short of the experience Heathrow aims to provide its passengers.

Gordon Dewar, chief executive of Edinburgh Airport, said: "We are delighted to once again deliver the busiest ever month at a Scottish airport, highlighting the growing demand for flights into and out of Edinburgh Airport".

"Heathrow has worked to try improve the service for users". It is encouraging to see the overwhelming majority of United Kingdom airports providing a good service for passengers with a disability, but I am determined to push the aviation industry to do more.

'This autumn, as part of our Aviation Strategy, we will consult on ways to make aviation more accessible for people with both visible and hidden disabilities, such as dementia, autism, loss of sight or hearing, as well as age-related conditions'.
