Helping air freight deliver
UK airport capacity is a limiting factor for UK importers and exporters, air freight operators and the British economy. FTA is working closely with government , members and other stakeholders to support sustainable growth at Heathrow and other airports, and promoting a balanced approach to environmental issues.
In addition to airport expansion, FTA campaigns for all of our members across the supply chain (carriers, shippers, forwarders, ground handlers and aviation suppliers) on many other issues. These include aircraft noise rules and regulations; climate change and air quality; road and rail connections and supporting greater access for freighters to current airport and airspace capacity. Through our training arm we provide advice and support on compliance with air freight security, dangerous goods requirements, customs and trade procedures, with discounted rates for members.
