About this event

Join us for a presentation by Kevin Harman from Heathrow Hub on the In Line Runway option for Heathrow. It is one of two options for Heathrow being considered by the Government along with an option at Gatwick Airport to provide the South East of England with an additional runway.

The In Line runway design was created by Jock Lowe, BA's longest serving Concorde Pilot. It is highly innovative but has never been implemented before. The presentation will explain how it works, the benefits compared with a parallel runway option, why it is so much cheaper than the alternative and is it safe?

Kevin will also touch on other airports around the world that could benefit from this design and those airports in the UK that with hindsight missed a great opportunity.
