The six regional consultation documents on future airport provision and passenger air traffic will be published later this year by the DTLR said Welsh office minister Don Touhig. The Welsh documents would consider all sites in Wales, including RAF Valley and RAF Mona on Anglesey, as well as the airfields at Caernarfon and Welshpool.
The minister was replying to Albert Owen, Labour MP for Ynys Mons, said a fully integrated transport system could bring economic benefits to peripheral areas such as his constituency. He urged the Welsh office to use its influence to ensure all four corners of Wales were served, and suggested that the commercialisation of RAF Valley could help achieve this.
