2 March 2021

The Government remains committed to supporting regional connectivity across all transport modes, including the importance of maintaining a thriving and competitive aviation sector in UK to deliver connectivity.

We welcome the engagement and evidence provided by the industry over the past several months through the Expert Steering Group and bi-lateral discussions and will build on this engagement and collaboration to develop measures to support regional air connectivity, particularly in the context of sector recovery.

In addition, the Union Connectivity Review will make recommendations on how the UK Government can level up transport infrastructure and improve connectivity between the four nations, looking at road, rail, air and sea links.
