Summary:imageAir traffic has grown rapidly and geometrically over the past 50 years. During the 1990s, growth averaged 5% per annum and is currently projected to go on increasing rapidly for several decades to come. Clearly this growth has been associated over much of that time with significant economic benefits. But disbenefits are now growing rapidly as well. This document is the SDC’s response to the discussion document published by HM Treasury and the Department of Transport.
