Examination of Witnesses (Question 360)
18 JANUARY 2006
Q360 Chairman: We know that. Do you
think that on the question of a change of flight paths there is
sufficient account taken of environmental issues?
Mr Cahn: Yes I do. I think environmental
issues are taken very seriously, not least by BA, which is the
industry leader in dealing with environmental issues.
Mr Wilshire: We believe the CAA
do and have to take environmental issues into consideration. In
this area they are advised by the DfT. I think it is very important
that the DfT advice is robust on these matters. We would support
that because we believe that aviation development and growth is
possible in a sustainable way.
Chairman: Gentlemen, you have been very
instructive. Thank you very much for coming.
