Public Service Obligation Routes

Volume 742: debated on Tuesday 12 December 2023

I am delighted to present this petition relating to support for regional airports on behalf of my constituents. The introduction of additional public service obligation routes would transform the outlook for regional aviation in this country, facilitating the growth of airports such as Blackpool and supporting local economic development. In the case of Blackpool airport, the creation of further PSO routes would help to achieve the restoration of commercial passenger flights, which is something that the vast majority of my constituents support.

The petition states:

“The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to take into account the concerns of the petition and take immediate action to ensure that local airports such as Blackpool are supported.”

Following is the full text of the petition:

[The petition of residents of the constituency of Blackpool South

Declares that the Government should consider reform of the Public Service Obligation routes to support regional Airports such as Blackpool.

The petitioners therefore request that the House of Commons urge the Government to take into account the concerns of the petitioners and take immediate action to ensure that local airports such as Blackpool are supported.

And the petitioners remain, etc.]
