Stansted expansion not shortlisted by Airports Commission
A report by the Airports Commission favours expanding Heathrow or Gatwick instead of Stansted.
The three short-listed options include adding a third runway at Heathrow, lengthening an existing runway at Heathrow, and a new runway at Gatwick.
The commission, led by businessman Sir Howard Davies, will also consider a new airport in the Isle of Grain in north Kent.
