In 2021 the Government should immediately end any suspension of the 80-20 rule. It should also have put in place new legislation setting local criteria for distributing slots that will incentivise inward investment, connectivity and social responsibility.

Legacy carriers should not have their market dominance protected by law, no matter how they behave nor how this hurts the interests of UK airline customers and UK workers. In January 2021 the UK can set its own slots rules. The current system allows legacy national carriers to monopolise the most profitable ‘slots’. This was once justified by such carriers being focused on high quality service and providing good, well paid jobs. We believe that this argument no longer holds.
