U.K. Air Traffic Head Faults London Airport Plan, Guardian Says

April 14 (Bloomberg) -- London Mayor Boris Johnson’s proposed airport in the Thames estuary would be in the “very worst spot” for airplane congestion, the Guardian reported, citing an interview with the head of the U.K.’s air traffic control service.

The site of the proposed airport, which will cost 50 billion pounds ($79 billion), is directly under flight paths for airplane arrivals and departures at four other London airports, Richard Deakin, chief executive officer of National Air Traffic Services Ltd., said in an interview with the Guardian.

Deakin said the architects of the plan did not contact him before they came up with the proposal last year, the Guardian reported.
