Professor Andreas Schafer, Chair of Energy and Transport at the UCL Energy Institute, has accepted an invitation to join the Airports Commission’s External Advisory Panel. The Airports Commission was established in the Autumn of 2012 by the Prime Minister David Cameron to assess the UK’s future aviation capacity and connectivity needs and to make recommendations as to the best options for meeting any need for additional capacity.

In addition to acting as a sounding board on scientific, economic and technical issues relevant to the Commission’s work, the Panel will also advise the Airports Commission on a range of issues including (but not limited to) aviation economics, climate change, aircraft noise, air quality, aviation technology, planning and engineering.
