Due to the current financial climate, Kent International Airport in the UK has been forced to cut back on its 25-year expansion plan.

A final version of the airport’s master plan reveals that estimated total passenger figures for 2018 have been reduced from 2.7 million to 2.2 million, which by 2033 will stand at 4.7 million instead of 5.7 million.

A passenger service expansion due to take place in 2009 on the 800-acre airport site has been scrapped.

The airport’s passenger flights per day will grow from one in 2010 to 56 in 2018 and 97 in 2033.

The expansion is opposed by the Stop Manston Expansion Group, the Kent Green Party and the Campaign to Protect Rural England.
