EU’s airport strategy is ‘outrageous’ waste of our money

The European Union’s airport strategy has been branded an outrageous waste of taxpayers’ money by UKIP’s Transport spokesman Jill Seymour. Millions of euros of have been wasted on too many airports, and on airports that are too close together and do not attract enough passengers, according to the European Court of Auditors. A staggering 38 million euros worth of infrastructure is not being used at all, according to the damning ‘EU funded airport infrastructures: poor value for money’ report.
