BA says that the takeover of BAA will hasten the construction of a 3rd runway at Heathrow.

Speaking to The Times at the International Air Transport Association (IATA) conference in Paris, Mr Walsh said: “I have no doubt Ferrovial will be committed to investing in Heathrow. The conversations I have had with them indicated to me that they were serious investors interested in the long term.

“Given the premium they are paying, I am convinced they will be very focused on developing Heathrow and adding to its capacity. I am more optimistic now that the third runway will happen sooner rather than later.”

Of course, the opposition, ClearSkies, which represents people living under Heathrow flight paths, said that it was mustering an international “armada” of volunteers to take direct action to block construction of a third runway.(Times)

Maybe Airliners.net can muster their own "armada" in support?
