Britannia Airport

A consortium has backed the concept of Boris Island, as shown here in an artist's impression by Gensler Architects (2012). The floating airport in the Thames estuary would be called London Britannia Airport and could be built in seven years at a cost of £47.3bn. A spokeswoman claimed it would avoid all the problems of other airport developments in the South East currently under review by the Davies Airport Commission, everything from noise pollution to bird strikes. And of course it would avoid the danger of jumbo jets flying over densely populated areas of London (CLICK).
