London Oxford aims to boost international traffic with larger runway

London Oxford Airport has set its sights on increasing its international traffic after the CAA approved a runway extension. The airport can now accept larger aircraft following an extra 273m added to the runway, four years after it was made wider and stronger. It is targeting long-haul routes in the Middle East and US to boost capacity. “This achievement makes a substantial difference for the future evolution of the airport.  Many business jet and regional airliner types can now carry more passengers, or achieve significant gains in range from the airport,” explained James Dillon-Godfray, business development director at London Oxford Airport. “Outbound transatlantic charters are now possible on certain types, opening up the North American market for us, for the first time. On the airline side, we can now court the furthest parts of the European market.”
