Gavin Shuker – 2016 Parliamentary Question to the Department for Transport

The below Parliamentary question was asked by Gavin Shuker on 2016-02-08.

To ask the Secretary of State for Transport, what the value is of awards made to each route from the Regional Air Connectivity Fund.

Mr Robert Goodwill

In December 2015 Government announced that 11 new air routes would be supported with start-up aid funding through the Regional Air Connectivity Fund for three financial years. The amount of funding provided to support individual routes will be paid in arrears and will be determined once routes begin operations and will depend on factors such as the number of passengers carried.
