The U.K.’s Airports Commission just rejected Foster + Partners‘ plans for a new international airport in England’s Thames Estuary. The proposal was designed to alleviate air traffic from Heathrow Airport – which is Europe’s biggest air hub and is currently operating at full capacity. Foster + Partners’ plan was strongly supported by London’s mayor Boris Johnson, who labeled the Commission “myopic” and “irrelevant” in his fury at the decision. The decision leaves only expansion plans for Gatwick and Heathrow airports as alternative options.
